Emma - Navajo by Laura Romero

I was attending a Stake Conference in my church when I noticed Emma. She was with her son and husband when I noticed her turquoise earrings that she was wearing. After the meeting I went up to her and introduce myself as an artist and wanted to paint her. Emma smiled shyly and said that would be fine. Emma with her husband came to my home so that I can take pictures of her and make this painting.

Cantaloupe with Bird

Cantaloupe with Bird was fun to paint (after some frustrations) because of the different textures and surfaces. The metal spoon and white ceramic dish are both reflective. The lemons have a transparent quality with the light coming through and the cantaloupe looks nice and juicy. Then there are the birds feathers, which I didn't want to paint too tightly with every feather perfectly placed. It was fun to make him a bit more messy, like birds are. -Jenae Green
