Artwork Description

An amazing alizarin alien and her pet Babelfish gaze out at you with big luminous eyes. Using a palette of red and turquoise colors, I created this surreal portrait of "Swingin' Red," a red-haired alien, and her fishy companion.

Thank you for the kind words, Raine! Unlike most of my work, which is painted on Fredrix canvas, this one was painted on Crescent illustration board. I believe it was lightweight.

Hi Valerie! I wanted to say that your gallery looks like no other's and I love the subtle, brilliant colors and brushstrokes. Someone else said it looks so personal, and I was going to say the same thing.
(I especially love hoe you painted the eyes in this one!) May I ask what type of paper/board/canvas you use?

Thank you, Pierre! I guess my work does come from a personal place Smile.

Great composition and coloring Valerie (as usual I should say). There is a very personal feel to your gallery, which makes it really stand out. Keep sharing your lovely pieces with us. Smile

Art at its best.
