the life of a Raggedy Ann doll

the life of a Raggedy Ann doll ,

some times you are not thrown away ,you just hang around waiting for the next generation to be picked-up and loved again ,

       my little heart beats faster as I hold my breath waiting for the door to open, but  I think she has forgotten me ,

 some times I get abandon , and left alone to be found by someone else ,will I be loved again by tiny hands and a beating heart ,

The essence and sensuality of a woman

talking to Elise Ann Immiti my makeup artist  about a woman with a sensual look ,very interesting my point of view and hers ,40 plus years years between us ,yet we know it when we see it ,, but some times to me the true essence and sensuality of a woman is devoid of makeup clothes and jewelry or her hair styled ,just her inner self coming through is maybe the true essence and sensuality of a woman, Nancy is the fifth model to shoot like this with me I truly love them for there openest to allow me to photograph them like this ,

Roman Kriheli Artist Original Acrylic on Canvas, Sureal art, Wall Hanging Painting

Roman Kriheli

It may all be hype, Yet I am a firm believer that he is a great artist. I bought one of his paintings many years ago, which I have had on display in my home until recently when I replaced it with my own photography.

 I purchased the painting when I first moved to California. I liked the how unrestricted the artist was in his freedom of thought for the painting, and it is what I still admire about the painting today. At that time his studio was in SoHo, New York in the 1980’s, which were inexpensive artist loft. This gave him the freedom of thought and conceptual design in his style as he was not motivated by money, Just the pleasure and inspiration of being an artist.  So hype or not, this is a great example of his early work before his 20 year break. 

 Acrylic on Canvas, Original Painting. It is 52” X 52” signed in 1985. So I am making this original Roman Kriheli available to private collectors or galleries, All offers will be considered, I will also be placing it on ebay later this month.
