Oriana – acrylic portrait painting on 6x 6 inch Ampersand gessobord
This is the second portrait in my experimentation with “Art Nouveau meets the Fauves” color and style combination. I really enjoy painting with these colors. I also enjoy naming my paintings. I do research online, for names in different cultures and time periods, or sometimes, famous names in literature. For this painting, I used the Celtic word for blonde. I think Oriana is a beautiful name.
“Oriana” is now available for purchase in my growing online shop.
