Porcelain Lady (1st half)

Among some treasured figurines from the closing of a family home was this fine porcelain lady. Perhaps she is a southern Belle, if only we knew her story. I do hear her speak elegance and femininity, so she is emerging from flower blossoms and reflective table top. This first half, about six hours of painting, was just to set the base colors and plan the space. Much more refining will come.

11×14″ oil paint on canvas panel; contact the artist for purchase information.
