The Couple.....

I was taking additional photos for some of my work I have on Artfire. I hope that by seeing the pieces shot from different angles and area's it would help people decide to purchase my work. It is hard to see all the work in the photos shot straight on. You do not see the reflection of all the layers, and embellishments. The photos are also small and hard to make out sometimes. Then I took some more photos of the "couple" I painted. I have not listed this piece for sale, yet. It is a bigger piece than the others. This photo of the Girl allows you to see the paint chips I added to her hair for texture. Her eyes a metallic turquoise that reflects light. She has a beautiful jewel and many Swarovski crystals at the center of the flowers she carries. On an angle like this you can see the layers a little better and more of the stamped patterns on her dress and the background. Here is the Guy. His eyes reflect very blue, like the girl I have added texture to his hair. His face is soft, yet masculine. Layers of paper and paint help define the area around him. Glittery mettalic stars surround them both.
I took a photo on an angle so you can see some of the "layers" When you see the piece close you can see the print on the collage papers underneath. I used various papers, prints, and music.
This piece has a 1" thick frame painted a nice pink color that really sets it off and has been sealed with a light coat of beeswax. Suziblu has asked me if I will make prints of this painting, (she mentioned she would like on if I do, which was for me quite a compliment), and I may. Having it professionally scanned and printed on the right paper with colorfast archival inks is a bit costly. I am on the fence for now.

You're right, most of the time pictures don't do justice to their subject.
It is a beautiful painting-I love the images on his shirt and all the layers.

Yes the jobs, such a worry. I try not to make myself feel even more sick over it.
