A chic young woman looks directly ahead, her eyes hidden behind the tint of her glasses. With this detail, the subject becomes the viewer, looking at us from a protected vantage point. A simple, yet powerful portrait. Nava worked the surface of the piece and describes it as a textural wonderland. "The patterns in the background incorporate sand, creating dimension," explains Nava. "The woman's dark top is rich with glitter, mixed into the paint to amplify the feeling of luxury."
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.

Gorgeous! Plus, it arrived on time and well packed.- C Linehan
I love my new artwork! I have been looking at this for quite some time and decided to purchase it as a "to me from me" for my birthday. She is hanging proudly in my front entry. I love Paris; to me, she is sitting outside a bistro in Saint Germain wearing her red lipstick and matching purse! Love her!- L Hutchison
