New Painting.

Creativity is such a mystery... Lately, I've been more and more inclined to paint these women. This is somewhat surprising to me, as human figures have never made an appearance in my art before. But now they help me express my deepest feelings... and I decided to comply...
Hope you'll enjoy seeing this latest painting of mine. It was inspired by a very special girlfriend who fills my heart with gratitude and joy.

It reads: "Comforting, special connection."
"Sister Friends". Acrylic, gesso, wax pastels on flat canvas. Measures approx. 30 x 40 cm. /12" x 16".



Hope you're enjoying the last days of Summer!
