This oil portrait, like the companion self-portrait I loaded last night, is 24" square and was painted in 1995. It is of a delightful, fantastic, alluring, beautiful, giving, and gifted woman. Unfortunately it is a terrible rendition of her and my experimental efforts to save the painting by adding a visible symbol of her innate ability to ‘see’ into the loving heart of all, does not make it much better.
But, since this woman is who I can attribute so much to, and It’s one of the few images that even comes close to expressing her unique and incredible qualities, I’m loading it. For instance I give her the graceful credit for leading the fearful man in my 1995 self-portrait into who I am today; A confidently silly senior citizen who loves and laughs my way through the days (or daze as the case may be!)
LOL… and this represents that late night episodes into artistic endeavors is not a new phenomena in my life, so here’s another entry for the Night Crawler’s group!
