As I continue studying art history, I will be painting as I go and posting the inspiration piece if possible. My purpose is not to copy the paintings from the great masters, but to learn from their technique, history, and passion. I will be adding my own touches, and changing elements in my interpretation as a mixed media Folk Art piece. My newest painting "Portrait of a Woman,with Bird", was inspired by "Head of a Mulatto Woman" by Joanna Mary (Boyce) Wells, 1861,shown below. My version includes the use of artist papers to make the many layers of the dress. It is available on Ebay now. You can see my current paintings for sale by clicking**HERE**.
