My first painted portrait of a new year.


Genevieve – 11 x 14 inch acrylic painting on smooth Bristol paper.

I am thrilled to be back at painting faces! And I am happy that I have been influenced by Henri Matisse’s style…he used bold brush strokes and brilliant colors in his female portraits, and studying his art, made me go a little bolder in my own art. I am afraid of color, no more. 

I have just put this painting up for art auction at Daily Paintworks.  Update, SOLD! Thank you!

I’ve also put a few new paintings in my online shop on Etsy, including another portrait and a painting that is inspired by Monet.

It’s been a busy month of painting for me, and I am just fine with that!
