Behind the Scenes

I really enjoy painting darker skin tones. Those dark tones better reflect the color of light and surrounding surfaces. The entire story and environment can be simply read by careful observation of skin.

In this portrait, the model at the school chose to wear a simple cotton Mexican dress, and I knew instantly, I would love painting her. Graceful, and exuding strength, confidence, and wit, I determined to catch the goddess within Athena.

Bring Athena to your home or office and she will be sure to be admired by guests and customers. She would feel right at home in either a modern or traditional or even rustic decor!

Athena is beautifully professionally framed as pictured, and ready to hang. If you would like the original without the frame, please contact me and I will take $350 off the the price.
