Skinny Minnie on Windy Wash Day
I had so many interruptions while I was working on this painting, but I've finally reached a place where I can be satisfied with it. I like the loose, flat, brushy white areas contrasting with the tighter painting on the face of the vintage young lady. Her name isn't really Minnie. She's my aunt and her name is Dolores. This picture was taken in the mid-forties. There was nothing wrong with her, she was just really, really skinny.
