This is a whimsical painting. I wanted a color block background to provide the appearance that she was leaving a doorway. She has her red hat and coat on and is ready to embark on a new journey and adventure. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.

She finds that most of her best work springs from difficult times. Her current work explores a range of emotions and facial expressions through portraits. In the end, she hopes that her art will look and feel like an emotional story or journey.
