"My Imaginary Friend"


"My Imaginary Friend" - Oil - 9" x 12"

"This wisteria trellis is in full bloom and I hoped to have a model to paint. The subject just called for a lady in a sunhat ... or one with a basket... or one sitting in a wicker chair with mint julep waiting nearby. Unfortunately, the plan didn't work out. This figure is imagined." --- SFG
Note for artists: First, paint what you see! Making things up too much leads to a pit of mistakes. If you find it necessary to add something for compositional reasons, be sure the light and perspective are consistent with the rest of the scene.
