Egg tempera and oil glazes on canvas

I am so lucky to know many artists that are my friends, not only visual artists but actors, writers, singers and musicians, who so very often have inspired my work.
In the case of “The Singer” the inspiration comes from my good friend Arlyn Wolters. She is blessed with a wonderful voice that can be as soft as the petal of a rose, as strong and powerful as a storm and all the dynamics and colors in between.
I believe a right song sang by the right voice can elevate the vibration of the listener, as does the old masters paintings on the spirit of the viewer. It was for me very easy to be inspired to explore this concept with such a the beautiful face, wonderful voice and creative talent of Arlyn.
