Mariah O'Neill

oil on 4x5" panel. This was painted for Julia Kay's Portrait Party, Mariah has been an amazing inspiration for me, she paints beautifully and uses thick paint on sensitive subjects and makes her subjects sing. To see her work click Mariah O'Neill As of today I have completed three small portraits for the portrait party, that's one a day and I'm thinking these little painting are taking up a lot of my time and may have little monetary potential.. but then when is money ever the inspiration for painting!I really like doing this-it feels right- maybe I will show my little portraits for an important show I have scheduled in 2011, why not?
