Fountain's Beauty

I'm painting for my next show at The Gallery at 916 opening on June 5th, so please forgive me if I haven't paid you a visit lately. This is my latest "fountain" painting and I think it's my favorite. I used a palate knife for the sky, I have blue paint everywhere in my studio. As usual, if you have a title suggestion, I can use some help.

my first thought was Wind and Water. Really lovely--I like the iconic, "looking up" vantage point. Gives her a soaring feeling.

Amanda said...

It's beautiful. She looks like one of your ballerinas. I'm not that great with names, so I'm sure I won't be much help.

By the way, Terry and I went to the place where you bought your Hoosier cabinet, and they had one that we both fell in love with. So, now I have one, too! It looks a lot like yours, but mine is red and white. I'll post about it some time.

Hi Liz,

I liked the vantage point to. Thanks,

Hi Amanda,
Wish I had been with you, I LOVE my Hoosier Cabinet and I'm glad you have one too. I need to come up and let's have a girls day.

Thanks for your comment about the fountain, I need to find out if she has a name.

Hi Rhonda

You painted her at such a great angle and I love the dimension of the background from using the palate knife.

How about the title "Fontainebleau"?

Rhonda Hartis Smith said...

I like that Pat, what does it mean? Glad you like her!

Paula Villanova said...

I love the perspective on this and the handling of the lighting, particularly on the underside of the fountain. Beautiful!

Thanks Paula, I spent a lot of on the bottom of the fountain.
