'Sans Peur Non Sans Reproche' Painting

Sans Peur Non Sans Reproche ( Without Fear But Not Without Reproach)
20 x 20 inches
Original Painting
torn elements were then added to my painting such as 1909 papers take away the 'too nice' look of the painted image alone and I think the cute scar adds 'reason' to her shyness.(see closeup of scar detail achieved with a stanley!- Jim thought I was MAD as I was slicing through !! Haha-but he now agrees that it gives her character)
My daughter Jade inspired this work ie the red curly hair & the green eyes!
In answer to Aoife's Q
Hi Aoife! NO Aoife I do not Photoshop my pictures or alter them for the screen in ANY way apart from resizing for loadup time. This finish is achieved on canvas by hand & they are EXACTLY as they appear on the computer .I take a photo of my finished work and load them up! Come see them at Cow's Lane Market, Temple Bar on the Sat.24th

Thank you Rainey for visiting me. It is fun to find a artist friend in Dublin. My husband and I have lead tours in Ireland. His CD won best Celtic CD of the year in the USA.
We have great fun in Dublin and the ancient country side Celtic places.

I hope to stay in touch with you.
