Donatella's Arrival~New Work

   I have so much to say about this painting.  First of all, I wish you could see her in person because again,  my photograph does not fully capture the details.  I was definitely inspired  by some Frida Kahlo paintings  as well as vintage fashion photography.  Love Pinterest!   I wanted to bring together my love of flowers, with textiles, and fashion.  People often ask me who the women are in my paintings.  I have no idea~they just evolve but  all look a bit similar I think. Going forward I plan on doing more work that reflects my Italian heritage.   This painting is 20x24 painted on a cradled birch wood panel.  The sides are painted to match therefore it can be left unframed if desired.  Thank you for looking.  Catherine

Your art is absolutely stunning and so very beautiful! It's hard to pick a favourite because all of your paintings are amazing, but I think this is the one! It's a complete WOW! I am so glad I found your gallery - you are such an inspiration. Regards, Lindsay
