The Invitation
Acrylic on canvas

As promised yesterday this is the second piece that was accepted into the 
San Fernando Valley arts and Cultural Center Form and Figure Show that
is on virtually all month.  Please hit the link and visit the exhibition to 
see some amazing art.  This is the third show this painting has been in
this year, and I am delighted that it was accepted into this exhibition.

The painting captures that wonderful moment when you open a letter
to find an invitation to something special, and you are so happy 
thinking about the event to come.  

Big thanks to my model Raylea Lambert, who is why the painting
is radiant with emotion. 

Have a loving your life day.

Thank you Evelyn,

I didn't record what I did, so I can't tell you. I just kept
working on it until it made me happier.

Love your work.
