Bal Masque

This is a quick watercolor painting (12x20 inches) that I did last year for a local show. I did not enter it because it is not my usual style. It is really loose. I took another look at it this year and I guess it grew on me. Kind of fun, so I entered it this year.
The inspiration is from a photo that was taken from the annual Kokoon club, Bal Masque which was the ticket to get if you were in Cleveland about 80 years ago.

This painting looks wonderful, Maria. Did you share that the couple on the right are relatives of your husband's? It's fabulous that you had a photo from this fun moment in the 1930's!

Dear Maria,
I love this quick watercolor that has enhanced values and vivid colors!! Great. Like a short witty speech or a punchy good joke.
Cheers, Sadami
