oil on masonite
I see people like this woman and I think do they know how beautiful they are? How much presence they have in a room full of strangers? I really enjoyed painting this piece - mostly the woman's fantastic face and colorful clothing. She reminded me of Georgia O'Keeffe so much so, I accompanied the painting "Black Cross, New Mexico" beside her. Here's a closer view of the woman's face.
This new painting will be included in my July show at 16 Patton, in Asheville.
