Every now and again someone comes into your life that from the very start, you just know somehow they're extraordinarily special.
That's precisely how I felt when Mixed-Media Artist, Kelly Berkey entered my cyber world.
Some of you might already know SWEET KELLY from her lovely Blog and Etsy Shop. With happiness, tenderness, and expressive style she creates delightful canvases and jewelry pieces.
I personally just had to have one her Soldered Necklaces with "Artist" imprinted within.
This is one of Kelly's Newest Designs. The inscription means "Beautiful You," in Hawaiian. Lovely, isn't it?
These are just two that I particularly favored. And although I haven't officially entered her challenge..something just kept whispering to me that maybe I should pull out my oils and head to my easel.
This is my first effort at Figurative Realism in quite some time. It's a 9X12 Oil on Linen. Now as you can see, my rendering isn't precisely as the photograph read..but it's the way my eyes and heart chose to see this Beautiful Woman.
