OPENING BID: $150.00
SIZE: Approx. 19.5" x 23.5"
NOTE: The painting is about true love, finding a soul
mate. A person you know will be there through the good and hard
times, for the long run of life. In today's society everything is
in fast motion: meeting people, dating/marrying, buying a house,
buying new clothing and items... and within all this, people get
tired quickly of everything they are consumed in. Divorce is so
common; it has changed the way we look at the word "forever."
But still, people strive to not be alone and find someone special
in their lives. We still know what we like and what we don't, and
maybe a "Prince" or "Princess" is still out
there, like in fairy tales — waiting for the day they
cross our unexpected path — to happiness. This painting is
a reflection about finding your other half.

clothing company called Silver Coast and Baby Pins, and a Copy Center
with a Design section. In 1999, she turned to web design and programming
in the ever-growing World Wide Web. Since then, she has found her
place online in combining various art forms into each project —
by first launching a personal portfolio site with poetry and art
and two years later, launching e-zine SCENE
360. "I've always been fascinated with different art
forms, movements, and styles. Cinema, art, literature, poetry, and
music are the things I truly enjoy. I try to explore new possibilities
of creativity by expanding my artistic horizons. I could never imagine
limiting myself to working in only one art style or form; that's
why I'm constantly studying, improving my skills, and experimenting
