Woman With a Ring - SOLD

The 7th in this series of women with their jewels. I've nothing more to say except it has been an interesting journey so far. Now wherever I go, I am looking at the jewels women wear and noticing how they display them. Some women go to great lengths to help you focus on their jewels. Others simply take them in stride...

Woman With Jewels in Back

It's really a shame you can't see this in person. Her necklace and earring is made with strands of iridescent copper and beads created with blobs of mica. The beads are quite 3 dimensional but it doesn't photograph as such.

Three Strands

I have been having such fun with this series...even with a month away in the middle I was able to keep my interest and enthusiasm going (not an easy task). I wasn't sure this would work and I struggled for quite awhile until I finally felt it showed what I was trying to convey. For this whole series I have been using interference paints and iridescent paints on the jewelry which does not photograph well at all. Suffice to say, they are a lot more fun in person.

Girl with Pearl Necklace -SOLD

I love the juxtaposition of ideas between the pearls and the cigar. I think it's rather unexpected. At the same time I love the dark moody club feel. My last few paintings have been in bright colors and I probably needed to return to my comfort zone with something dark again. I'm have a lot of fun with this series. there are still 6 more I want to do. Then what? I'll have 10 paintings of women with their makes me laugh.
