My newest available painting was quite an endeavor! I started her almost two months before she was completed! Usually I paint quickly, and can finish an 11 x 14 inch portrait anywhere from two days to a week. Rarely does it take longer than that. But as sometimes happens, life and circumstances play there part, and sometimes projects have to be set aside. Little by little, I worked on this one when I had the chance.
I think you know why I gave her that title. Patiently, she didn’t give up on me, and I didn’t give up on her. That gorgeous light aqua green color came in at the end, which completely made the portrait for me…a little reward for my patience I guess.
She is now varnished and and waiting patiently for a new home.
I have a few more new things in the shop too. I have enjoyed working on these small 4 x 4 inch chunky canvases.
I have Iceland Poppies growing in the backyard, and I think they inspired this one.
Another small painting, this time, a little portrait.
Anabel Dreaming – 4 x 4 inch acrylic on chunky stretched canvas (the sides are approx 1.5 inches thick)
And another redhead found her way into my shop this week.
Portrait of Giovanna was originally in my Daily Paintworks shop. Now, she has a listing in the ArtcyLucy Etsy shop. She is larger than my usual…14 x 18 inches acrylic on stretched canvas. She is inspired by the paintings and drawings of the master artist, Leonardo da Vinci. I loved experimenting with that darker Renaissance palette, and I had so much fun with the movement of her hair.
You can find her listed in the ArtcyLucy shop, along with 162 other drawings and paintings. If you have a chance to take a look, you might find something that you fall in love with.
