Woman Near Green House

Woman Near Green House  16x20  Oil on canvas panel

Updated Photo 1/2/10  - The photo of the "new" painting is on the left, the "old" painting is on the right.  I tried to improve the rendering of the woman's hands and face.  The darker photo is just digital bloggerization; I didn't change anything about the house in the painting. Honest!

For a person who tries to avoid GREEEEEN, I sure went through a LOT of green in this painting.  I picked this out of some public domain photos on the internet cause it seemed like I needed to make a painting.

It's hard to believe, but this will be my last posting in 2009! Tomorrow is 2010. That number seems cumbersome to me but I'll need to get used to it.

I'll probably make some adjustments to this painting after a while and before I sign it. I guess it will be finished when it's finished.

Happy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year, Ken, and congratulations for your portait, it is a success!

  3. Hi Sylviane! I've been wondering where you are!?!?
    Thank you for dropping by my blog and for the nice comment(s). For whatever reason it appears twice - I think that you've been "blogged" as I was recently. Some but not all of my posted photos disappeared. Ah well, it's a new year so new things happen to us already!

    Happy New Year, I hope that this year is a good one for you and your family.
    Ken B.

  4. Hey, green avoider ;) you've been very prolific at the end of the year, haven't you? That's a nice forecast for 2010... :)
    Nice painting, I love the woman's face and all the colors on her white clothes. And that's an awsome amount of work on the wood strips!
    Best regards,

  5. Hi Carolina The "Green Avoider" sounds like one of those super-hero dudes or dudettes! I'm going to update the photo as I've done some "enhancements" to the painting. I thought that I'd get the green (paint) out of my system and be done with it for a while.

    I'm working on a (GASP!) still life in the studio. 2010 is going to be fun!
