The Baker's Wife (work in progress)

I've been working on this, off and on, for quite some time now. It was once a good bit larger and then was cut down, and colours have changed here and there. The final major alteration was in flattening the foreground with the diamond pattern. And still it isn't finished, although it's almost there.

I had hoped to be able to post the finished painting today because I'm leaving you to your own devices for a couple of weeks. Tomorrow Pat and I are off to Mallorca to recharge our batteries and possibly indulge in a bit of a siesta. Be good.

Haven't visited in a while Harry so have got some catching up to do. Love this one, the abstract quality supports that feeling of "don't want to move too much, cos it's too hot".. the yellow sizzles.

I like it too but feel like it's run aground slightly., so it's gone on the back burner again. But it *will* be finished.
