Bianca and Beatrice (above) is about a mother and daughter. Though, it could be sisters or friends. Beatrice means, voyager through life and Bianca, pure and white. One figure gently holds the the vine and the other the blossom. I am pleased with the way the two different figures represent their stage in life by their stance, it's subtle.
I painted Lovely Astrid while I was thinking of Cannon Beach. I was thinking about how happy people seem to be there even though it's often rainy and grey. It's calm and pretty like the painting.
Note to Kate: What do you think?
