Day 29 --30 In 30 Challenge

Hoola Hoop

6 x 6 oil on gessobord

Found an old photo of the 1960's in a second
hand store and finally decided to paint it.
Doing faces that are small is so hard to do,
do you leave them without eyes ect. or try
to place in suggestions of eyes, nose and
mouth. I will try this one again later for
a different approach.

Oh, my gosh! This is just too cute!
Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

Thanks Chris, I remember when they were sooo popular back in the day.
Ps- your blog blocks my comments, I'll figure it out someday.

Hi Susan- I found you through 30 in 30, which I'm participating in, too. Love this painting and how you came upon the reference!

Susan...hello, yes you can find old photos of lost and discarded family photos that would make fun paintings.
