"Windswept" was inspired by a photo of a pal of mine stationed in Morocco.
I loved her direct gaze and glorious hair!
She is a truly mixed media.
Acrylic paint and glazes were the first layers.
Then collaged antique papers were added to add dimension to her hair.
Two glossy varnish layers were then applied.
As a finishing touch I hand embroidered long sweeps of hair as well as an intricate, soulful eye.
Please see photos for details.
"Windswept" was painted on a sturdy gallery wrapped canvas with painted edges so it can be hung unframed or framed as you desire.

This painting is one that was to be presented as part of the show "Neridas - Daughters of the Sea" for the month of May at Arts on Main in Gloucester , VA. COVID-19 had rendered that unsafe so I am presenting the collection to you here. I hope you enjoy it!
Happily Art on Main Gallery has offered me September as an alternative date and I am working on a different body of work for that show.
If you would like to commission a custom painting of your favorite person, pet, place or thing, please be in touch.

This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Niriis (Νηρηΐς) Niriides (Νηρηΐδες)”. The Nereids are sea nymphs (female spirits of sea waters), the fifty daughters of Nereus and Doris, sisters to Nerites. They were distinct from the mermaid-like Sirens. They often accompany Poseidon and can be friendly and helpful to sailors fighting perilous storms. This name is also linked to “Nereus”, from the Ancient Greek “neros (νηρος) Nereus / Niiréas (Νηρεύς / Νηρέας)”, meaning “water, liquid, aquatic”. Nereus was the eldest son of Pontus and Gaia a Titan who with Doris fathered the Nereids, with whom Nereus lived in the Aegean Sea. The largest Mediterranean underwater sea cave yet found, lying northwest of Sardinia, was named by the discoverers, the Nereo Cave, in honor of this mythological figure. Source: Name Doctor
