Beautiful portrait Satu

I have had a browse of her work. Interesting. What is particularly interesting is that her self portraits seem to become more and more distressed in both senses of the word as she got older. As Ros has said, this Portrait of a Girl is beautiful.

Lovely gentle portrait, off to google Helene now!

hi satu its lovely . yes keep in touch and thankyou for commenting on my painting

Thank you very much Ros, Gudrun, Debs and Dennis!

A lovely painting, Satu. I particularly like the way you have treated the hair. Well done!

Thank you very much Lionel !

Totally angelic Satu.

This is so sweet and charming and is beautifully and sensitively painted. Love it, Petra.

Sorry, wrong name - have just commented on one of Petra's so her name was on my lips. Of course, meant, Satu! Senior moment I'm afraid.

Thank you Thea and don't worry about the lapsus, it happens to all of us!

This is absolutely charming, Satu! Love the subtle shifts of tones and hues. Beautifully done!

Thank you Seok for your kind words!

This a painting I copied about ten years ago for my mum. The original is by Helene Schjerfbeck, a fantastic Finnish painter. She painted this 1887. Do google her, well worth having a look. I haven't done anything new for a month so I just wanted to post something to keep in touch.
