Prudence's Calling

11x14 painted on stretched canvas.  Prudence's Calling will be for sale in my etsy shop.  I love how this piece came together.  When I started out, all I knew was  that I wanted to use pink and the name Prudence.  The french phone and white desk were obvious.  The abstract painting on the left started out as a girl holding a bouquet of balloons but then suddenly my abstract/cubist alter ego took over.

Love hearing about your process. The painting is beautiful -- my favorite detail is the vase on the desk.
Have a great weekend,
Jeanne

This is gorgeous. I just love your work.
Would you mind if I did a post featuring your paintings?
Do drop me a line if you agree.

Love the colors and the pretty ocean scene outside the window. Do you ever do very large scale paintings? Love your colors and your eye...really beautiful!
