‘Maude’ 4″ x 4″ oil painting abstract by Victoria Kloch

When I was very young on few occasions Aunt Maude came to visit. She was small and fragile. I remember thinking that she was the coolest lady ever because she only had one arm. Maude elegantly wore a scarf draped over to conceal her missing limb. Inspired by her scarves, I fondly present to you, Maude.

About this Collection

This is one of many small oil paintings in my series titled ‘Women’. They each represent family, friends and other women who bring inspiration in our daily lives. This project started out as a study for future color palettes for my larger paintings and emerged as little gems. At first when it came time to name each piece, I realized that each had their own personalities and reminded me of individuals that have touched my life in some way.

  1. What a lovely little painting, reminds me of my days in London streets when there was an art market / sale on.. my mum loved taking me – can’t recall where it was or if it’s still going but used to be stalls and stalls of all sorts. Small paintings always appealed to me. Lovely – thanks for sharing.

      • You’re welcome and yes indeed! You’ve inspired me, i think i’ll try some 4×4 work – i do paint abstract watercolour but am learning and just use an A4 pad at the moment. Oh and one acrylic canvas. Do you work with watercolours or acrylics?

        Thanks,

      • I love to hear this! Yes, I work with both acrylics and watercolors. Watercolor was my first love. I have some posted here if you would like to see. To the right of this blog there are categories for each medium. Let me know when you get your 4×4 completed, I would love to see it. It was very nice to meet you.

      • Will have a browse later (just in from work catching up on emails). 🙂 Thanks again and look forward to seeing lots more – and will let you know 🙂

Well, what do you think?
