About the Artwork

February was, alas, not finished in time for Valentine’s Day. Which would’ve made much more sense than releasing it at the end of February. Alas, c’est la vie!

I had fun designing those heart-shaped glasses, and they only took me painting them about 8 times before they finally looked right on her. But I’m very happy with how they turned out. I also love the tones and colors of this one and think they’re very appropriate for February and Valentine’s — what with all the roses and pinks and peaches.

This painting will be a part of a calendar that I’ll be putting together around the end of 2017, for 2018. Be sure to join my mailing list or follow me on your favorite social media to see more, and to find the calendar when it comes out!

Be sure to view the full-size image (and closeup) in the Portraits section of the gallery!
