Pastel acrylic portrait by New Zealand artist Karen Rankin

"Anna" is a pastel and acrylic painting of my son's partner, Anna Crimp. She kindly posed for a series of photos we took in some lovely light/shadow, I have earmarked a few photos to do some further paintings.

This painting was accepted as a finalist into the Tasman National Art Awards exhibition in Mapua, 2022.

Framed in one of my favourite ornate frame.
The moulding has a slight antique copper patina, and is framed with a simplistic black inner frame, which sets it off beautifully.
