Hanging Around

I made a Title Challenge over at Painting Friends, giving everyone the two words "Hanging Around."
The idea is to come up with your own painting that will somehow fit these words.
Feel free to try one yourself, if you'd like :)

Here's my version:

    for our situation. I look your work and I think that a dress can inspire the imagination of a man or a woman whose go around and around in the day or in the night...

  15. Your painting challenges could be quilt challenges. I'll have to think about what I would do if I could find the time.

  16. Using cute for art work may not be apt. But I have to use it here.
    It is just so cute. :)

  18. I love simple little studies like this. It's well done too :0) Sometimes I find that dropping other colours in to the wash when wet can create all sorts of added interest too.

    Glad you liked the painting. It just shows that ordinary household things can make for paintings - and cute ones too :) :)
