I am seeing dots -literally...(SOLD)



This little painting on canvas 25cm x 30cm x 4cm edges was a labour of love over the last few days - I kept returning to it whenever I had a moment just to continue with the decoration on her hair - the dots were tedious, but the effect is great I think...



The background is "impasto" for greater texture which wraps around the canvas and looks a bit like "rock" surface...




And I have signed my name as part of her necklace...

I will be listing this painting on eBay in a few days, once she is varnished and a hanging hook is attached to the back of the frame.
