Hi Nancy. This lady looks like Sandra Bernhart. Here's another link for gallery articles

You know what Mark, you are right! The girl is from a photo of a girl on flickr. Thanks for the link. How are you doing?

She reminds me of Rosie the riveter in our contemporary times

Thanks Robin, that is a great vision. It must be those arms!

Paula Villanova said...

I vote for Sandra Bernhart...either way, it is very expressive partly through the nice composition!

n. rhodes harper said...

Thanks Paula, maybe I should send an email to Sandra to see if she wants to buy it!

Nice painting...I see the Rosie the Riveter look too! Must be the strong looking arm that makes us see her as a welder type. Hope to see more in the future. :)
