Long Dresses (revised)
I just wasn't completely happy with my first stab at this painting. I thought the gallery viewer was stiff and that was the problem, but after looking at it for a couple of days I realized the background magenta was just too colorful and drew too much attention so I neutralized it and now the person doesn't look odd to me. The little painting on the left is by Tarbell and is called "Girl Reading a Book." It is my favorite part of this painting, not for the least reason, because it is so tiny and I think I got a reasonable representation of it. Again, I have to say, Karin Jurick is my favorite painter of these types of scenes.
