A Red Dress in the Woods

This painting is the first very large canvas piece I’ve taken on. At 5 feet tall it was a daunting project, but in the end it has become my favorite piece to date. Trying to capture the quiet patience of this forest spirit was difficult, but trying to convey the texture of velvet, or of sunlight on red hair were challenges I was not prepared for when I started. Through many hours of painting and repainting I have learned so much through this piece that it will be hard to part with.

  1. This is an absolutely gorgeous piece and would be the centre point of my art room if you would ever consider parting with it..

    If you ever consider,
    please let me know.

    Thank you
