Always.... 12"x16" (18"x22" framed). oil and ink on tea-stained paper.

i really enjoyed working on this piece... which i worked alongside
another piece for another group show in a couple of weeks at Copro Nason gallery...

currently (now that the mess is settled) working on another piece for 1988(LA)'s
Cult for Film show (july), as well as the book themed show at Corey Helford Gallery (aug)...
and also on the 3 person show coming up in september at Roq La Rue!

i'll also try and update my website soon as well.
it hasn't been updated this whole year!!

please check back for all the new paintings to be posted soon!

This is so beautiful. I always love the colors you use - elegant but moody.
What kind of paper is this on?

my favorite part of all of your work is the perfection in the skin and then the ink outlines to emphasize it off the page. you inspire me!

i personally love that it gets very meditative painting the skin...
and actually i've outlined it with black oil paint this time, instead of ink (so it sits better).

thank you so much!!! :)
i'm glad.

thank you, kathy!

and thanks for all the wise words of advice and encouragement reagarding my other posts.
i know that kind of stuff is inevitable, but just hoping that nobody would have to waste
the time and energy into such negativity, not just me...

thank you again!!

Wow. Her face is probably the most realistic one you've painted so far. I LOVE it!

I swear someday I'm moving to California so that I can see all these shows :P

an amazing piece

Hi Stella~!

I have to say this piece is absolutely amazing. Probably one of my favorites of yours- just beautifully done~!! I saw this one and got a little chill from it--

I've contacted the gallery about the purchase list, but it seems I'm a little way down on the list. I hope I get lucky, but if not I second the other person's desire for a print ;)

Thanks for sharing

Re: an amazing piece

Hi Stella~!

Thanks for the reply- I am very happy to hear there will be a print of this one. It's just too beautiful to not pick up a print I'm definitely pretty excited about it.

I'm glad to hear it sold so quickly- congrats~ I emailed the gallery for your march 08 show list in the hopes that I am possibly early enough for getting a piece from that show~! Thanks again~!

i love the nose. =D
Your work is so beautiful.
I love the harsh outline because it's such a great contrast to the stunning and smooth painting it contains.
