Vocal artist, attorney, supporter of the arts,......
......I first met Helene when she was hosting art displays of a mutual good friend, Bill Johnson, at her home. She probably appears a bit older in life than you see in this painting, but I paint what I see....and sometimes what I want to see.
I think the first task of an artist is to convey a feeling, and, secondly, to make an interesting painting. Hopefully I did both of those successfully. After that, if you can get a likeness, so much the better. We are all working toward better.
The colors are pushed slightly and the reds, especially in her face, are not that intense. I still like the result.
Thanks for looking. I'll be back soon with some of the Maine paintings.
