In the midst of painting a number of commissioned portraits, I needed to loosen up and decided to do a painting for myself inspired by a model that I had just met.  Her coral colored cheeks and lips just called out for coral colored amaryllis flowers crowning her head.  One stem's worth ended up fitting perfectly!  Dalilah Rain is such an exquisite model...don't be surprised if you see more paintings of her in the future...

As soon as I finish up my last few commissioned portraits, I will be gearing up for a new body of work.  I am hands down more excited to paint this new imagery than I have ever been in the past!  I'll keep you posted with details.  : )
