Mixed Media Portrait on canvas
I finally decided to go through and finish some portrait paintings that I have sitting around in various stages of completion. I have started a gallery called the mixed media portrait Limbo Gallery, on my facebook page to put these paintings in.
I actually started painting the portrait of this young Lakota girl a few years ago and became stuck. I couldn’t get things worked out like I wanted so I set it aside….way aside. I revisited the image several times over the last few years and decided it was not yet time to dive in and finish her.
I began putting together the pieces of various paintings that were in Limbo and I again came across this young lady. I decided to go ahead and work through the mental challenges I had in finishing this painting. I don’t even remember why I was stuck. I started fresh with no preconceived ideas specific to background and she finally fell together in a manor that I quite like. I hope you enjoy.
She will remain un-named until I can come up with a suitable title for her.
Exceedingly lovely and an inspiration!
