What I love most about this painting is that you cannot tell if it depicts the moment of anticipation before her performance, or the moment after she has performed. The ambiguity adds intrigue and elevates the beauty within her anonymity. Using painterly techniques loaded with rich texture and vivid color, I pay homage to impressionist works and channel one of my favorite artists John Singer Sargent. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Nava

Nava’s romantic and heavily textured impressionist paintings radiate delicate, feminine charm. She focuses on creating depth and dimension with the layers of impasto she applies with a palette knife. This textural element blurs and abstracts the composition, conveying a notion of gentle, bleary-eyed beauty. Nava preps each canvas with a gold wash to make her paintings glimmer with luscious warmth. She works from her home in Florida, amid the chaos of children and canines, and finds peace painting in silence.
