When less is more

There are times when less is more and often that is the case in paintings! Here are two examples. The 18 x 24 horse pastel is an unfinished display painting that I decided to leave that way after people were surprised while I was working on it to discover that it was not done :-). I like the vagueness and "wispiness" of the image.

The 24 x 20 oil  is a client portrait that will be completed as the client desires. My artist husband, Steve is painting this one.  But I love it at this stage...warm, inviting tones of sunlight...makes you feel you are right there and feeling the sun on your shoulders!
