Another 'hand vignette' painting

I'm still working towards my imminent(!) exhibition so I'm following my current rule - "No Sketching!" Well not much anyway, I did draw my coffee this morning...
Anyway, I was pleased that others like my last post so much, and so I thought I'd share another of my 'hand vignette' paintings seeing as I have no sketching to show. This one is titled "8.35pm". It is again acrylic on canvas, and this one is approx 3' x 1'.

My exhibition will be only small and will be at the Bunker Cartoon Gallery. (I've actually put links on the side finally, and I've included one to the gallery.) But this is the first time I've prepared for an exhibition AND worked full time. (I've only had a couple of exhibitions before, usually small and of work I already had done.) Very hard to do and I'm really stretching it to get even a handful of works done. I've actually had to take a couple of days off work to make sure I get far enough ahead that I DON'T panic.
Rule No. 1 - Don't panic!
(and I LOVE brackets!)

The shoulder of the lady looks rather masculine (that or the person on the right is a rather feminine looking man).

Nice picture! Love the shading :-)

This is great. I really like the 'draw what you ate' sausages. Is that pastel or very dry acrylic? I'll keep coming back. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your exhibit paintings.

This is really nice, Jan. If I still lived in Maclean, I would be at your exhibition in a minute!

Hi Jan,
Good luck with your show--the gallery looks really interesting! I like the picture and the story it creates for me: They're on a date and she's not sure if she likes him and he's not sure if he should take the last bite of their appetizer. Also, thanks for your comment on my site and for adding me to your links!

Oh, you're going to be a smash at the exhibition, especially with paintings like this! What wonderfully fun subject matter! Do we say good luck, or are we supposed to say "break a leg" for an art thing???

I like your favorite also. You can read so much into it with a little imagination. The colors are great.

I use backets a lot also. This way your dont have to worry what else to use correctly.

Would you like to link to my personal blog? You can reply from it in the comments section. I link it a lot to my arts and crafts website.
