Portrait of a Woman with Roses....

This is my latest "portrait painting", featuring a woman holding a spray of roses. This piece has a soft and diffused finish to it, although it is not coming through in the photo. For some reason it photographed a little harsh, and I took several photos at different times of day in different light (this is the best I could do). So much prettier in person! 16 x 20 stretched staple free canvas. It's available on Ebay now,along with a few other new pieces. You can see my current paintings for sale by clicking**HERE**.

Tattered Renaissance.....

I've been trying to think of new ways to incorporate my love of art history into my paintings, and as I was flipping through some fine art catalogs in my collection, I decided to use the glossy pages of prints featuring old master paintings. In this piece, I used prints of "A Dutch Harbour Scene" by Thomas Heeremans 1660-1697 for the skirt of the dress, and "A River Landscape With Three Huntsman With Their Dogs" by Pieter Meulener 1602-1654 for other areas of the dress and accents. This mixed media painting includes moody colors, subtle textures, layers of papers, and an "aged" finish for a tattered renaissance look, 6 x 12 stretched canvas. It's available on Ebay now, You can see my current paintings for sale by clicking**HERE**.
