Life Gave Her Feathers (#3)

Life Gave Her Feathers, 8 x 10, collage/acrylic
Elizabeth W. Seaver
sold

This painting I created for the commissioner herself, who is a fabulous weaver. She is also one of few I know who could bring the feather boa from obscurity into stylish daily wear.

I appreciate her support of my little corner of the art world with her confidence in my ability to make something she would be pleased to give as gifts.

Thank you, Fran.

Hi! Thank you so much. That was the fun part of it for me: figuring out what would best show their interests.

Thanks for stopping by and for the encouraging words!

Ana--thank you. I love what the paper does behind the paint. Then I try not to get in the way!
