Portraits of people, places, things and ideas. Visit my blogfolio: artmiks.wordpress.com

These eyes are from a painting I did of a good friend. It is called J with a Feather Earring, painted in oil on canvas. Even before I painted this portrait of her, J was one of my greatest fans, and with this painting, she became my cover girl. I used a limited palette of four colors in the style of Rembrandt to create the warm tones of this painting which portrays the personality it shows.
