    I met the model in this painting at a remake of the musical Hair. She was one of the singers that has an incredible voice. I loved her diva energy but peaceful words and inner soul. She looks like a diva, performs like one, but is very much a believer in the law of attraction and the universe. She is an old soul. I was so inspired by her aura and performance, that I asked if she would model for me. She did a few times. Keys of Soul is a truthful recording of her. She is a professional R&B Soul music singer that does many show tributes to Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, and Chaka Khan.The background is imaginative and I wanted to make it seem like a time tunnel colorful oval shape to emulate female organic shape as well air to create mood and atmosphere. The lines and blurred oval shapes are really from a music sheet that I transformed. The expression is a reverie and a peaceful thought, but her body is very strong in her stance and the nails and jewelry represent the diva singer fashion that soul singers past and present wear on stage. The whole piece and her persona of who she is in life on stage and off is 70’s throwback Pam Greer like hairdo. Her IG:@jaquitamaymusic

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
