Portrait of Rosamonde

Portrait of Rosamonde – 8 x 10 inch acrylic on Raymar professional art panel I took a short break from painting, after making those six large portraits to show at the beauty salon.

Where Flowers Bloom

“Where Flowers Bloom” is an 8 x 10 inch acrylic painting on stretched canvas. (SOLD, thank you!)

Brooklyn – 18 x 24 inch acrylic and collage on stretched canvas This is one of six large canvas paintings I worked on in the past two weeks. She is a beauty, if I do say so myself…and I just adore the background, that is so full of colorful marks. Her dress is actually collaged…
