Paintings Inspired by Valentino (and other things)
When I began working on this series of paintings, I wanted to illustrate women wearing Valentino dresses. What resulted is actually a series of work that embodies many of the things that inspire me and find their way into my  work - birds, music, textiles, pretty antique chairs, the color red...I have included some reference paintings (actually they are pen and ink drawings) because they are very stylistically distict from the final work.
This is a personal project.
