6 x 8 inch
oil on wooden panel

In the Green Room at the theater during the Mikado, one of the maidens fell asleep on the couch. How could I resist such a pose along with the wonderful colors in the light and shadows falling over her gown? And so much fun to paint!

The painting is filled with rich colors of peach, rose, soft orange and deep reds. The images here look quite dull in comparison to the real painting. Clicking to enlarge the close up image of her face will give color more like the painting.

I will use this little painting to make a larger one where I will add one more figure.
Click on the close up image to enlarge and see the richer color of the painting.
