Sarah with a Seashell

Oil on linen 12x16

She was a great model for this challenge. And an interesting soul. Traveling, creating art, plunking down for a spell at various art communities. This second portrait gave her a little of the youth back that I had stolen from her in yesterday's portrait (see previous post).

Thanks for looking.

Dale, these are great....love the form created, personality as if we know her and ease with which you handled the paint.

Thanks Dona,
Having a great time here. I'm kind of glad the cold weather is back so I don't miss the tulips in my garden....

Not being an artist, I thought there would be no way to redeem this painting. By the third picture I felt sorry for the poor model, that she would be depicted so. But the last one is so fabulous I now envy woman. She is beautiful. It makes me wish I could look at a person, place or thing and see as much beauty as the artist. Luckily, we can see that beauty in the finished work.

Great portrait. I really like what you did with all those the facial colors.

Thank you Dick and r,
I have a vague memory or noting that I wanted to respond to your comments way back, but then phliffft. The sound of a note leaving the brain. I appreciate your comments on the colors and the expression.
