9×12 original pastel on La Carte paper, $235, framed, plus shipping
Some paintings paint themselves. “How long did it take to paint this?” people ask. I tell them it took X hours, plus 16 years. When I am in the zone, it is magical, easy, intuitive and colorful. I had just finished six portrait commissions and it was time to cut loose. I painted knowing I didn’t have to please anyone. This one is for me. This one is for fun. I like how it turned out…free, fanciful, flavorful.
