Like all of us, I am entranced by a woman's beauty. 'Beauty is higher than genius for it doesn't have to explain itself" Oscar wilde. I have recently begun painting certain women who soooo inspire me with their radiance, their inner something, their je ne sais quois! Beauty isn't easily defined because it is boundless and unique to each woman. And when a woman goes raw, she glows! Below are some portraits I have done of raw women who are incredibly inspiring to me by their luminous beauty- their essence.
