This is the first of a series of painting based on photographs I took at Philadelphia's Mummers Parade on New Year's day. This little girl was having a great time watching giant gumball machines work their way up Broad Street.


  1. Great painting. I love the level of detail in the coat and hat, just fab.

  2. I agree, lovely painting. Beautiful tones and I love the brushstrokes in the background.

  3. The colors in the shadows are so luminous!

  4. I love how you handle the greys -- they are so very colorful! And I like the more geometry look of your brushwork. Very clear statement with each brush load of paint put down...

  5. You are one very good painter Taryn! The little girls jacket is pink but because it's in shade/silhouette almost, it appears quite dark, brilliantly done a I love the way the shape of the coat and creases in the material are so well observed. Great work And this isn't just a random comment I love your figure work.
