Title: Girl in the Ferns. Painted by Sheryl Humphrey in 1999.

This is a small-scale original oil painting on stretched linen. Framed in a simple hardwood frame painted antique gold on front and flat black on sides.

The last image shows how my similar-sized paintings look in a gallery setting.

Canvas size is 12 x 9 inches; stretcher depth is 1/2 inch; frame adds another inch to dimensions: 13 x 10. Signed on the reverse side.

This painting is part of "The Sisterhood of Flora" series. Dedicated to Flora, the ancient Roman goddess of flowers, this is an ongoing series of paintings depicting girls’ and women’s faces surrounded by blossoms and foliage. With mysteriously compelling gazes directed at the viewer, the subjects of these portraits from imagination take on an otherworldly aspect, even as they merge with the flowers around them.

This painting has been exhibited several times, most recently in "Tribal" at the art6 gallery in Richmond, Virginia. Also shown in my solo exhibitions at Art Lab, Staten Island, NY (2007) and at the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center, Brooklyn, NY (1999).
