"Amelia" is an oil painting on gessoed paper. She is based on a childhood friend of mine that posed for this piece and "Aria". Her dress is based off of a gown by Giambattista Valli. The dripping effect of her hair and dress are a way of finding where the paint belongs on the surface with lots of medium and thinner, finding form and depth in the process. She is bold, yet a fragile chameleon. This painting is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.
