Swirl Girl - contemporary figurative oil painting,debbie miller

30x30" oil and oil crayon on canvas.
Its hot. 
In my ac-less studio working on a commission. 
Its not so fun today and I find myself drifting off and staring at my 'swirl-girl' dancing on the wall.
She looks cool and happy.
My middle son is ALWAYS strongly suggesting that I go more abstract.  He is right of course.
Dont know if I'll keep on experimenting with the crayon...and I HATE painting on canvas...BUT
more 'swirl girls' are in my future :)

Sunshine shoulders, beach plein air painting

6x6" oil on panel.  plein air.
 Squint,squint, squint.  my mantra with these.  really helps get the values right. 
go ahead - squint at this one - you'll see what I mean.

this painting will be with me, along with many more of my paintings in Wickford, RI this weekend for the
art festival
 Instead of in a tent, I'll be showing my paintings on the porch at The Wickford Collection - super cool shop you won't want to miss.
come by and say Hi!
