Hamtramck Year One- Portrait of Matt by Felicia Forte 12×16 Oil
Featured Artist: Felicia Forte – check out these two wonderful paintings. Wow, Wow, Wow!
Felicia Forte. I ran across Felicia’s work and it really caught my attention! There is something different about it. It’s got pizazz! She catches the subtle nuances that really make the painting stand out. Like the streak of light paint on the left lens of Matt’s glasses, you can see dimension. So much of this painting is realistic and incredible, the hair and shadows on his face are wonderful. The combination of that wonderful, funky blue and the loose background makes this painting a WOW to me.
In the Interim- Time Machine by Felicia Forte 20×24″ Oil
The freezer. Who paints a freezer with much success? The way that Felicia has that jaw dropping lavender, along with the bits of yellow and that AH-MAZING light in the back of the freezer. Good grief. Who would think a freezer painting could be so awesome? Be sure to check out Felicia’s work – it’s different. I love it!
