Oils on wood

she has a matt finish on the background, a chalky blue grey.
I am pretty happy with this new work, (yet untitled) for a few reasons. For a start this was a double first time! At Christmas, I received 2 birch wood cradles from my oldest son and his lovely girlfriend. First #1, I got to learn how to paint on bare, smooth, beautifully finished, soak up my paint and teach me a new world, wood. It was awesome. I loved it. These are super nice and thick substrates…new favorite thing.
#2 new thing, I painted an alien! lol yup an alien. Well, I am one to approach new things with gusto and enthusiasm…if you want more background on this painting read the post here.
I hope you enjoy her, she fits with my other work in my figurative style. I don’t feel she is a departure or a one of a kind, I will visit this is again soon.
Her is her little movie 🙂
