Hillary, I was at work today and a bunch of us were hovering over the computer just admiring this work. And then as if you were a movie star I blurted out , " I know her!"
Really I love your interpretation very much.

I keep coming back to your painting. Your colors are beautiful and I love the foliage surrounding the building. It makes it look very inviting. Great job!

Dean H. said...

Love the eye catching color and the background. Bravo!

Carole Baker said...

Your DSFDF painting is beautiful. I love the trees and the colors. I've enjoyed looking at your other work too... I especially like the little still lifes.

Hillary Miller said...

I wasn't going to look until I did mine but lo and behold you did oils hahaa! It was very hard to decide what to use - what made you choose oils? I'm jealous that you got to play with more body love your palette (what else is new right?) :)

Lee said...

Love those sherbet colors, Hillary.
Great stuff as always!

Hillary Miller said...

Hi Erika - I guess I wanted to play with that body too! And sometimes I long to go in the opposite direction - that is, from dark to light! In oils I like to start with a dark/colored ground...

Thanks Lee, it is kind of like sherbert, you're right!

Hey Hillary, I am giving you an Art Blog Award cut & paste from mine. You deserve it. If you choose to, list 7 things you love and then list 7 fellow bloggers. Then notify the 7 that they have received awards.

Hillary it's so beautiful! I just love the colors. You filled sky with trees. It works well. Big clouds are not common things in San Francisco anyway.
