Blue Dress - NFS

"Blue Dress", 14 x 11 In, Oil on Panel
I don't know if it is possible to portray someone's feelings, but it is important to try. Maybe "enigmatic" is the best you can do. I decided not to "finish" this one--it needed something else.


  1. This one is really beautiful, I love how you expressed the planes of the face with different color spots. Lovely job!

  2. Hi Bruce--thanks for commenting on my painting!
