Gabriele

5 x 7 inches, watercolor and gouache, 2009.

This was a portrait commission. The client wanted something romantic and suggested something reminiscent of J.W. Waterhouse, as we are both fans of his work.

I am absolutely certain this must be a great likeness. It has such vitality and yet serenity. Beautiful!

Beautiful suggestion of mood, and I love the round mirror or windowthat shows a bit of landscape in the background.
