Introducing “The Rose Tattoo”, which is part of my contemplation series. This was a lot of work and I have gained a great respect for the tattoo artist who designed the model’s body art. I have always wanted to do a painting of a man with a tattoo. The biggest challenges, of course, were to make the figure three dimensional and have the tattoo appear like it was on his skin.
I was thrilled to find out that my oil painting “Study in Gray” was awarded Honorable Mention in the Contemporary Art Gallery’s All Paintings Women Competition for January. A group exhibition of all entrants will be held online at the Contemporary Art Gallery Online during the month of February 2016.
