Good Riddance Isaac

Oops, I almost forgot to post for Paint Party Friday! I hope it’s not too late. I didn’t get to play along last week because we had no electricity, phones, cell service or even decent daylight for 4 days, due to Hurricane Isaac. Which apparently wasn’t a hurricane after all but still caused some major flooding around here. Our home came through safely, though. I couldn’t paint because it was so dark. It was soooo boring! But I shouldn’t complain because we came through this one with no damage at all. I spent Saturday painting.  This is my version of Lady with a Red Hat – Portrait of Vita Sackville-West by Bristish/Scottish artist William Strang (1859-1921).  It was good to paint with these bright colors after such a dismal week. It really brightened my spirits. Hope you like it!

    You are an amazing artist! This is beautiful. I love the look in her eyes! And yes, the red hat is stunning!
    HPPF and so glad you came away unscathed from the big I.

    Great work. I love this combination of colours together as well. One of my favourite combinations. I am glad you got no damage in spite of other inconveniences (which sounds like one of my nightmares).
