En Plein Air: Dancing Across the Street (Oil, 9 x 12)

When I was biking the other day along Greenway South in Forest Hills Gardens, the road forked into Greenway Terrace and Greenway Circle. I saw a girl in a white skirt dance across the street as soon as she was out of a car on the roadside. The image was so eye-catching against the dark woods in the background that I decided right away that I would come back and paint again to paint the scene. I purposely made the image look older. I hope I could, someday, turn it into a larger canvas painting like Kim English whom people called the poetic artist.
