#24 Cathy


#24 A character from East of Eden, which is still tumbling around in my head even though I am 2 books past it now. I don't do this kind of painting very much and I am very clumsy at it, but it was fun. I didn't quite get quite what I wanted. I was too constrained. I wanted the proportions to be more loose and distorted and the brush strokes to be rougher, quicker, less defined. I might do some more of this type of thing to practice...maybe. We'll see how I feel tomorrow. It is summah time, and I just want to go where the wind blows me, so to speak...


  1. Cool! I've just started reading it so when I get to Cathy I'll have a visual. She looks like she's seen a thing or two, sugah. deb

  2. her eyes are faaaabulous daaarlink.
    well done!

  3. Wow, what a character. Makes me want to read the book; I haven't seen the movie in ages, but this makes me want to read the book.

  4. I love this one! It reminds me of a painting my grandmother had in her library.
