No Props Required

No Props Required.. okay not a good title, but something I was thinking while I saved the photograph of it. I believe the size is 14 x 22, but as I am down in the Prime Roast  coffee shop around the corner from my studio (for a cappuccino and to bum internet) I can't be sure. 

The full view.

The close-up

The set

For me this piece is all about how beautiful our hands are. Very captivating.

Hi Nicole,
I love the final version, it's beautiful, attractive, enigmatic, modern. I actually love how both versions look together, they do complement each other, as someone said on the previous post.
But I'd stay with the second if I had to chose one. Just my opinion :)
Best regards,

Stunning work. Love both version .

Both are very complimentary

Carolina said...

Both complementary and complimentary, of course :)

They look terrific Nicole!!! Your daughter is cute and she's undoubtedly proud of these paintings!! You have gotten so good at portraits, they seem to come so naturally to you now.

I'll bet having a studio away from home is making you much more productive nowadays, huh? :D

I just love your work, I've been snooping here for a long time and you never fail to impress me with your talent.

If I had to come up with a title for the "without props" piece, maybe - "the itsy bitsy spider ..." Too Corny?
