Acrylic on Panel - 9 x 12 inches

One of the costumed participants in last year's Bay to Breakers costume mini marathon. Despite the subject matter it feels a little cartoony to me. I can decide if she should stand out more or less from the background. Does the background help set the scene or is it just distracting?

The only part I really like is the gold trim on her costume. Loose, brushy and not a touch of gold paint.

Hi there. I like the background; it's understated but sets the scene (sort of). :-) Without your narrative, I wouldn't have understood the costume. And I like it, regardless! Nice work!
