    I like the colours of this image, Katleen, and it’s very well done. What I would have liked to see is a painting of just the one in the middle. You have managed to capture a great look on this face and as a single portrait I think it would be great. Just my opinion, Katleen. I’m no artist and can’t even draw the proverbial straight line. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Beautiful Katleen. This painting conveys “friends” perfectly.

    Three distinct personalities.

    I’m taking special notice that the pleasure of budding youth is best rendered in ochre tones and that the three bodies, presented here as a trinity, are one– a sign of abiding friendship.

  4. Those were the days…everybody has memories like this. So beautifully captured-makes it feel universal.

    Hi Kathleen, I love your choice of color on this piece. Working with a limited palette can be challenging but the results here are powerful!

    I want to do a poem with the line “giggle, ponder and sweetly sly” but not sure if I should or not?? I’m guessing these are you and your real friends? So I don’t want to say something I shouldn’t about them…but if you email me with just one fun or discriptive bit about each girl, you know I won’t be able to stop myself…hehe and hurry up and paint!!! you’re killing me!!! lol ๐Ÿ™‚

      you know you can write and interpret the way you want it!
      when a painting is given to the eyes of the public, it goes its own way
      that’s what I’m thinking,
      to me, giving a title to a painting is already too “much” information for the public
      and yes I’m painting and like people putting me in a hurry……
      but what if you try a haiku about this one? haha
      real challenge for you I guess……

      • Shards Of DuBois says:

        it would be a challenge, cause I’m too restricted by Haiku’s…and they don’t flow….I like to flowwww…lol but….if you don’t want to give me any info….I’ll just see what pops out!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ its your fault if it’s bad! hehehe jk

      • I know, that’s why I suggested a Haiku, haha,
        and to be honest, self-portraits are too difficult for me,
        so go for it and surprise me
        ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰
