Inspired by capturing an instant in time, when she becomes aware of the unfamiliar. The timeless soft garments and the dominant color palette create an environment of solitude in her alert state. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

When he's not making art, he enjoys listening to music and learning how to play the piano.
