I painted this piece after a recent visit to the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. I was quite struck by the Japanese interior paintings, with such beautiful wall paper / patterns / screens in the background. This is my version, using one of my favorite scarfs as the backdrop. The piece is oil on a canvas board, so framing is optional.

The day I walked into my first painting class changed the way I see the world. I love to study the shapes, colors, and light around me. I am a diligent student constantly trying to expand my understanding of different techniques in oil and watercolor. I often set up lessons for myself and don’t move for hours once I get started on a piece. Painting is my reward.
