This is an original oil painting on luan (mahogany) wood. The subject is a portrait of a young female artist painting a picture. The palette includes a very pale blue-green background with muted dark reds, browns and skin tones in the foreground.
The viewer is looking at a young woman at her easel. She is shown hip high, dressed casually in a baseball cap with a brown painter's smock around her neck and tied around her waist. She has short auburn hair and wears glasses, her face shown in profile. She faces three-quarters away from the viewer standing at her open french easel. Her right hand holds a paintbrush poised on a small canvas with her palette of paints below.
.The work is in pristine condition and signed by the artist. It is framed in a wood frame with a gold gilt front and matte black sides, ready for hanging, as shown.
