(14"x11" wax pastel on gessoed w.c. paper)
I saw Golda while shopping a few months ago.
Her braids and beautiful skin caught my eye. Past experience taught me that if I see/meet someone I feel drawn to paint I should not hesitate to ask permission to photograph them at that exact moment in order to capture the essence that inspired me. Golda agreed to allow me to photograph her, paint her portrait and post the painting on social media.
Thanks Golda for being open to the experience!
"A portrait painting is the artist's expressive interpretation of the sitter, capturing a single moment in time."
