Dirndl portraits: the goal is in sight

Dirndl Portrait in progress - Kim
Dirndl Portrait: Kim (in progress, detail), 60 x 80 cm, oil on canvas, ©2012 Julie Galante.

I gave myself until the end of February to complete at least 10 (preferably 12) of these large dirndl portraits. It will be close, but I think I will make it. I have five that are complete and another six that are almost there.

I have had to be very purposeful about creating this group of paintings; working in series doesn’t come naturally to me. I think the paintings will make quite an impression when displayed all together, so I’m glad I’m making the effort. I plan to exhibit them publicly in Munich later this year.
