    Description

    Oil on Dibond

    40"x 28"

    This painting was published in Aug 2017 for the family edition for Poets and Artists. This is my sister Joann and the title was chosen because of her inner peace. It was important to bring the background yoga design into her dress. It was imaginative with a shot of her in her yard under a tent. I had to creatively invent the lighting and background to melt within her as she is a yogi and very spiritual. The invented colors describe her persona...within.

    beautiful

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
