Reading the newspaper 9"x12" oil

Sold
I had a hard time getting a model for Friday, when I finally got this one I had a pose in mind from William McGregor Paxton called "the morning paper". My version is more poster like, it is just the way I saw it once it was set up.

Wow! This is WONDERFUL! Great job "capturing the beauty and essence" as your profile states.

I checked out the Paxton painting, and love your interpretation of the pose, especially the angle of her shoulders; very strong, yet a pose of rest. Nice.
