Turquoise Dress - NFS

"Turquoise Dress", 12 x 9 In, Oil on Panel
So much of painting is not particularly romantic, its more like an obsession--doing it every day whatever the mood of the moment. You notice that I do have certain themes, and painting my daughters is one of them.


  1. I think the special quality of knowing and loving the subject comes through very clearly in your wonderful paintings.
    Love all the subtle shades of blue in your turquoise dress.

  2. Julie--thanks as always for your comments!
