“Non-traditional portraits painted in traditional ways are my greatest passion … Each piece seeks to go beyond realism and capture the essence of the subject.”  

Ok, well now I want to know whose essence is wearing this lovely, delicate, perfect lace dress! This is the exquisite work of New Mexico based painter Shana Levenson. I am, and always have been, in complete awe of people who can paint like this … not only because of the skill involved, but the fact someone would challenge themselves to paint LACE. And HANDS. I am not that person, but Shana certainly is. Happy Friday.
