Pastel acrylic portrait by New Zealand artist Karen Rankin

"Weaving Dreams" is the second portrait of my son's partner, Anna Crimp. She kindly posed for a series of photos we took in some lovely light/shado. This particular one she was lying beside a garden trellis which left some beautiful shadows falling over her. I added the heart trinket for interest.

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.
