The Story of "Misty & Romeo & Juliet"  -  Shattering Barriers

2018 is the Year of Women. So...to build on that momentum, I am creating mixed media portraits of woman I admire for their courage, brilliance and heart. "Misty & Romeo & Juliet" is the first of this series. 

Misty Copeland shatters barriers - race, artistry, strength, tradition. 

On June 30, 2015, Misty became the first African American Female Principal Dancer in the prestigious American Ballet Theatre's 75-year history. She is a tour-de-force, ground-breaking woman who continues to inspire young girls and women of all ages. 

I began my series with Misty because she is young and courageous. My hope is that young girls and women see themselves in her and see proof that beauty and talent come from within, despite the traditional boundaries cemented in the past.

My Multi-media Process

"Misty's" background is a page of sheet music from the ballet "Romeo & Juliet" layered with color and texture. I create the background image digitally with photoshop. I then print, adhere, and prime the background on a 8x10 inch canvas panel. I paint the subject of the portrait with oil paint over the primed background. I varnish the entire painting when the painting is completely dried and cured.

I use the highest quality artist oil paint and varnish. The original multi-media painting arrives at your home framed and ready to hang.

I take every step to ensure the image is as accurate as possible to the original painting. However variations in color may occur due to monitor differences. 

In addition to the original painting, you can order canvas & paper prints in various sizes. Click the “Select Options" drop down menu for sizes and price.
