Painting - Sarah

11x14 inch acrylic painting
Well, I have to admit it. My last post bored me a little. Not while I was writing it but now, after the fact. Lists?! Really? I don't even really like lists that much! ;-)

I prefer art. And so I am doing another quick post with the painting I started sometime last week. I'm not sure if she's quite finished. Right now I'm in the "lets stare at her for a while until I know for sure she's done" phase.

It's the first profile portrait I have painted that I really, really like. And I'm sure it will not be the last.

When she's all finished and varnished, I'll probably offer her for sale in my Etsy shop, which I haven't closed after all. Remember I was going to? Sometimes it's wonderful I don't do things right away... Procrastination can be such a time saver! ;-) Selling on my blog is too much work to keep up with - and I'm all for keeping it simple this year.

So, stay tuned...


  1. oh my gosh, silke! i LIKE this woman! this seems like a totally new style for you: the rich background, her incredibly rich hair (what depth!) did you use a palette knife?

    do you know bob dylan's song 'sarah'? this might be her. in any case, this is a woman i would like to know. i think she's not afraid of the truth....


  2. Liebe Silke,


    Herzliche Grüße


  3. Wow, she is fantastic!!! Great job!

  4. I like Sarah. She looks intense but thoughtful, intelligent and interesting. It's quite amazing how you can make one painting say so much.

    I'm glad you're keeping your Etsy shop going - I like the Etsy community.

  5. She's really lovely! I adore her profile. You did a wonderful job.

  6. This is fabulous, thank you for this post. I just love your blog: I always lurk and never comment, so just wanted to say thank you for all the wonderful posts.
