This is one of two new paintings I just sent to Cavalier Gallery. I love this particular painting and hated to see it go. I have never painted such red lips before which I love with the contrast of her light eyes and green background. I am SO burnt out from painting too much but I don't even dare let myself think about it with just a few weeks left to prepare for my show. I am so excited about this new group of work and feel like it is my strongest yet.

Melissa, I am an artist as well. I was in the Bonner'Gallery last night and had the pleasure of seeing your pieces in there. They are exceptional. I immediately wanted to see more of your work, so I googled you this AM. Amazing work. :)
