Advanced Style Artist: Aline Smithson

[Paintings by Aline Smithson]

I came across these fantastic works by Artist Aline Smithson and immediately fell in love. She explains how the idea for this series came along below from her website:

“This series incorporates traditional photography techniques yet, becomes richer with the treatment of hand painting. It is my intent to have the viewer see the work in a historical context, with the addition of color, and at the same time, experience Whistler’s simple, yet brilliant composition formula for the composition. My patient 85 year old mother posed in over 20 ensembles, but unfortunately passed away before seeing the finished series. I am grateful for her sense of humor and the time this series allowed us to be together.”

What a beautiful testament to his 85 year old mother!
