Watercoloring Sweet Moments in Time

FlowerGirlBackFLUFFi love painting traditional facial portraits. It has always been a big part of my art business. But i’ve really started to appreciate the subtlety and storytelling of a portrait where the face does NOT take center stage. i’m talking about figures facing away, or with heads and eyelids lowered, maybe with just the curve of a cheek visible. Painting a little one in a certain dress, a particular moment of action, or the perfect candid pose has become an obsession for me.

i love that the artwork becomes so much more timeless, romantic, ethereal and even decorative/graphic. Paintings like these are less formal in the sense that they needn’t be placed on the stairway wall, or in the family room. They easily work on a bedroom, playroom or entryway wall to convey an emotion or set a mood.

Hope you enjoy these few from this past week.

If you would like to discuss commissioning a painting like this from a favorite photo, please drop me a note via the contact page on this website. The images in this post are all examples of commissions that would run between $125-$155.  THANKS!!
