Waiting - oil painting

I had a Comment that my profile photo would make a good painting. I thought so too. Here's my painting "Waiting". This is  oil on canvas, 30" x 34". It has been shown at the Oil Painters of America national juried show and the Richeson 75 portrait/figure competition. And it was in the great article about me in Southwest Art Magazine, Sept. 2008. A shipping company (which I won't name) lost this painting for over a month. Just when I thought I would never see it again, it was found and returned home safe and sound.

The painting shows a woman sitting in a chair by a table, looking out a window. She is wearing a victorian silk dress. The costume is based on a dress painted by James Tissot
