Amber

As an assignment in Chester Arnold's painting class at the College of Marin, I chose to paint a portrait in the style of Alice Neel.  The original image (see below) was a B&W photo of Amber taken in 1984 before a ballet recital put on by Virginia Stapleton's ballet school.  The photo was taken by the very wonderful Art Kaye who sadly passed away this year.

Hi,
I am a huge Alice Neel fan, and I googled Alice Neel painting images tonight and came across this painting of yours. I just wanted to tell you how fantastic I think it is!
