oil on linen mounted on board 14"x10"

Using fabric folds helps me make compositions I find interesting, even fascinating. Fabric can become so much more than itself, as in this scene where it reminds me of white smoke from a smokestack. 

Unfortunately, after a few days of posing, gravity caused the muslin fabric to droop so much that I had to stop painting it. So, lesson learned (I hope). This painting isn't really finished, but I am fond of it, so here it is.
