“Tardy Prince”, oil on panel, 18 x 24, framed dimensions: 23.5 x 30

I love painting from life, I find it exciting to create a painting in 3 – 6 hours and I’m always curious to see what is going to happen. This model was wearing a red velvet period dress that evoked Sleeping Beauty or Snow White.  The heat from the lamp made her close her eyes, but I like the effect.  It definitely makes me think of those fairy tales I read as a young girl, where the imperious Queen was fond of saying “off with his head!”  In my own case I can remember that feeling in life of being all dressed up like the Queen of my domain but not being able to find a prince!

“Tardy Prince” won Best of Show at the Oregon Society of Artists’ Spring 2016 juried show.

“Tardy Prince is sold Framed.  Framed dimensions are 23.5″ x 30″ x 1.5” deep.  If you would rather purchase this piece without the frame so that you can choose your own, please send me an e-mail!
