This large oil  has numerous repairs, and craquelure to paint, but she is stunning. She is on my wall right now, unsure if I will try to sell her. That happens to me every now and then with a piece of art. This one has a ' feeling ' about it that matches my heart right now.
It is an advantage with art, I can hang on my walls, what is not selling at the moment.
SOLD, a 1960's iconic beautiful blond woman

I hope you enjoyed looking at these. I will have some garden pictures again here on my blog. Spring is happening fast and furious now. New growth, beauty, it is showing up all over the place.  I really am not ready for it at all inside.

Hope your day is good, tell your children , of all ages, that you love them today, smile at them with your eyes,

I used to have an entire wall in my house with portraits of red-haired, really auburn haired , women. From the late 1800's to the 1950's time frame. Since I like them so much personally, vintage portraits, they are fun to buy and sell. If they don't sell, I get to enjoy them on my walls. If your house is decorated in a certain time frame, 1930's-40's , 50's , 60's, etc. Then you can buy portraits from that time frame and decorate with them. Most portrait collectors either collect men's or women's portraits. A few collect both. 
Victorian, Art Deco, Retro, Modern...all look really cool with original art from their time periods.

If you have any original vintage or antique paintings ( NOT PRINTS ), that are portraits, and would like to sell them possibly, email me here. I am not really wanting to give appraisals for your artwork, as I am not an art appraiser, so please no emails like that.  I would  consider if you may want to sell a vintage portrait. Remember, I cannot give you what I sell it for, as I am looking to resale it. 

All of my art that is for sale can be found here.

I hope you enjoyed some of these paintings, and I hope your Spring is bright,
