"Summer Goddess", original painting, Size: 18 x 24 inches ( 46cm x 61cm),

painted in ink and acrylic paint on heavy weight, acid free water color paper


Bold, very vibrant abstract portrait of female goddess with strong contrasts of form and color.  Inspired by the female portraits of Picasso. This painting has rich, vibrant Fauve colors, including both warm and cool reds, purples, pink, violet, green, turquoise and other colors.


It is a very striking painting/drawing. The ink line drawing is spontaneous and raw and very expressive. The acrylic paint is bright and vibrant and gives the painting texture. The heavy weight paper shows through in many places providing additional texture and interest. This painting is on paper so you will have to have it framed (it is sold without a frame).
