A female portrait with a confident yet gentle smile. Close viewing depicts raised areas of gestural abstraction in a painterly style while remaining a compelling modern portrait when viewed further away. I wanted to capture the power of a subtle smile without a brash attitude. The addition of movement via the shoulders was formed by the paint application, almost like an artsy form of reading tea leaves. I enjoy allowing the paint to blend and move on the surface to create its own story.
