SIX BUTTONS

"Six Buttons" by Stephanie Berry
When I started this painting the canvas felt SO small.  It got approached in an unconventional way for me but I'm pretty happy with the results.  Again, this is one in the series I'm doing from a friend's old family photos.  He doesn't know who this is or the date but I love the saddle shoes with crew socks and the jacket with the big buttons.  It looks too cold for bare legs but I'm sure this was a hardy lady.
