an unguarded moment

I am back to painting again, after a short break. I love creating paintings of days gone by, days of grace and femininity.   This one is my new favorite. “An Unguarded Moment” is an 11 x 14 inch acrylic painting on Mixed Media paper. This is my first painting on this heavyweight paper, and I…

three lovely ladies

I think I may be a little bit addicted to painting these colorful 5×7 portraits! Adora Josephine – (gifted) Vivienne (SOLD, thank you!) Three more lovely ladies to add to my series. I am trying to change up the color palette here, and enjoying these combinations…that purple background in Vivienne’s portrait, may just be my…

Three Lovely Ladies

I’ve been creating colorful portrait paintings again.  These are just paintings that grow out of my imagination. They all seem to be main characters of their own story though…these three each have a tale to tell, don’t you think? Evangeline ***SOLD! THANK YOU!*** Greta ****SOLD! THANK YOU!***  Lydia – ***Sold, thank you!**** These are all…
