This painting comes matted with a foam core backing. It can be easily placed in a standard size frame or displayed as is in the acetate free bag in which it arrives.
This is a piece of mine that was made quite a while ago, back when I was attending a figure drawing group that met weekly. I like this piece. It is very serene and just a nice painting. It is painted much more realistically then my paintings of late, but it captures a mood well and that has always been my main objective.
There were few possibilities that life would lead me to, but for a career in the arts. My first love was in dance which I studied intensely. Through college I studied ballet, design, drawing and painting, but I also learned the art of stained glass. After graduation I lived in Seattle and worked for an architectural glass studio working with large fused glass installation pieces. I also worked for seven years in costuming for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and learned a lot about the body. Through all of this I have continued to develop my painting and drawing skills. For the last ten years or more I have focused solely on a painting and drawing career and in developing work that captures my thinking.
