This is a small study of placing dark and light, warm and cool patterns in preparation for a larger work. Her poised loveliness and the traditional clothing of Spanish influence on this young woman of the Philippines captured all my attention. I had to try to put her grace into paint. The larger work will be shown in a later posting.

    Congratulations! I am enjoying your little commentaries under the paintings, as well as those paintings I’ve actually watched come into being. How wonderful that you share these with the whole world!

    Such elegance and grace… one of so many I, too, have seen come into being.
    You are truly God’s gift! (and an awesome teacher!)
