Renaissance inspires Portraits

These four works were inspired by the Religious portraiture. Many works have an implied barrier between the viewer and the subject. I decided to create a three-dimensional border for an enhanced effect. I included examples below.

Highway-scapes

These paintings were inspired by my drive up and down the Florida Turnpike for many years. I wanted to use that experience in works of art. Utilizing the structure, I created a personal mood that embodied those experiences. Each work is 8 x 10 inches in acrylic and glitter.

Checkerboard Tornados

I started with an image in my head of a checkerboard tornado and worked from there! The figures in silhouette are of relatives. The faces are split to imply movement and blurred vision.
