$100 plus $7 US shipping or $15 Int.
I can't decide if it's the wavy curls on the side of her face (that reminds me of old world beauty), or her slightly shy smile, or just the warmth and acceptance in her eyes. But there's something about this woman that makes me think she would be a great friend to have on your side.
With some paintings I find it much easier to express the feeling I'm after than others. I have no idea why this is. I really wanted to focus on this woman's eyes, and the feeling of grace and peace she seemed to give. I don't know, there is something kind of unexplainable with her that really struck me. Something I couldn't seem to put into words, so I tried (all week long while
agonizing working on this one painting) to put it into paint and let you guys decide what it is you feel instead of me spelling it out for you.
Hopefully that worked. :)
But if not, onward to the next!
