The Cowgirl Series .. Cowgirl II: After the Kiss

Here's my second cowgirl, painted using the techniques I learned when painting my Sargent :

She's called "After The Kiss" and there's a reason for this.
When I was painting the lips, I smudged the bottom one a little. Mostly the shadow covers it - but as the colour was permanent rose, I couldn't lift it. So I decided to make it part of a story.
And the story is, our Texan cowgirl has just been kissed..

After the Kiss

  12. Hi Pat
    Sometimes it's the little mistakes we make while painting that turn out to be a good thing such as this! Great title... She is lovely..

    Thank you so much for your visit and kind words. I love painting stone work.. I had been thinking about all the ruins I would love to visit one day... This one was from my imagination. I am so happy you enjoyed.
    fondly,
    Penny

  14. LOL,I love that she has a story. For some reason you have reminded me of a very old movie called "mannequin". It was a silly movie but I loved it. She probably has a similar story.

  18. thanks, everyone. So glad you're enjoying what I'm creating. xx

    Ross, I wish I didn't know what to say.. for then we'd never have shared the same pain. Yet that pain and the recovery makes us more human.. another gift from our darling friends xx
