Today I completed this art deco painting which will be a headboard over a bed in our home. I am a huge admirer of artist Tamara de Lempicka. Those familiar with her work will see a resemblance to one of her paintings in this piece. I will give it a high gloss varnish tomorrow and will hopefully have the time to paint a Versace inspired frame for it too.
My husband Thomas really liked my latest classical portrait (now renamed ‘Girl with apples’. He decided that she should come out from under the stairs and be in front of the stairs instead! So now it looks like she has just glided down the stairs…
As a fun project in my home I am painting this portrait of an Italian Gentleman for our library. He will be mounted onto the painted ultra marine door when complete. Here’s a few pics of my progress so far. I promise to share more pics from this room when it is all done!
My classical oil painting of a woman and scarves had been loaned out for a while. I painted this a couple of years ago. It was good to finally welcome her back home! She now resides over the living room!
