This is a portrait of the incandescent spirit of Valerie Orth, singer/songwriter/artist/nastywoman! She is a force to be reckoned with - she takes on the world with every stride, making it a more wonderful, magic-filled place.
Check out her music by googling her name, Valerie Orth. She has a new album coming out after the new year called, "Wake You" and I'm pleased to say I did all of the cover art for her :)
This painting has silver leaf as the background so the colors change considerably depending on the light source and what's surrounding the painting. The silver acts as a kind of mirror. It represents the changing environment of her surroundings, yet she remains calm and centered.
