Portrait Show


I have a portrait in the show titled "If You Only Knew."  There is no image because I was under a time crunch.  
You know how they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words?"  Let me try it a different way.  I'll do my best to paint you a picture with words.
First of all, when I looked at her eyes I wondered what she was thinking and that is where the title came from.  Being an abstract painter the portrait of a woman is closest, in style, to Picasso although, I love all of the Abstract Expressionists.  The woman has long dark hair, large oval eyes and a curved line for her nose.  The portrait appears behind three horizontal colours; soft yellow on top, aqua green  in the middle and blush wine on the bottom.  This is a mixed-media piece.  The limited rice paper on the canvas provides the natural lines around the eyes.
