"Lisa in Profile" is a 5x7 original pastel on PastelBord. Bidding starts at $100.
Now this really doesn't look like Lisa. I'm not a portrait artist, and I don't take painstaking efforts at getting a true likeness. I'm just looking for gesture, color, drama, maybe if I'm lucky, mood. This is the first of my newest series utilizing all those things my friend, Susan, and I have been accumulating at thrift shops, and more lately, ebay.
Ebay, the bane of my existence. The hours I waste, sitting at this computer on ebay looking for vintage clothing and props. I feel like I've been on a gluttonous binge lately but you should see all the lovely goodies we've been bidding on. Actually, I guess you will be seeing them. They'll be on my models, currently Lisa, whom you see here.
