Napa Valley Art & California Landscape Paintings



ANGEL ...                                                                     oil/canvas  20x24"


   I really enjoyed doing this painting...  First and foremost, the subject is my

favorite.  I love the sense of confidence and self-assurity that is evident in young

women today...  Technically, this painting is fast approaching a direction

which I am wanting to go...  tight brush work for the face and loose,

almost abstract handling of the background and fabric.  A great deal of knife

work and digging through the paint...  So as not to be formulaic, I try to be

sensitive to the subject and the intention behind each painting...  

At a certain point the painting dictates how to handle the medium!
