I'm really happy with this painting. It has a style that I've been aiming for for quite a while. Relaxed and loose, but with a zinger of realism to add interest. Also I think I nailed a focal point on this one. It sort of has all the elements of what makes a painting work for me. Plus I really like the colors!
This piece is on canvas board and will need a frame for display.

There’s a certain innocent joy that comes through in Lisa Nielsen’s artwork. She finds beauty in the everyday and often ordinary, whether it’s painting a pretty girl in the garden or spending time with her daughter at Chipotle - and let’s face it, what isn’t beautiful about a burrito bowl? Lisa likes to say she captures moments in the journey of life. What we see in her art is all part of her life philosophy: to be still, to breathe, to exhaust the small moment.
