Nilou 3 (2013)

Mixed Media on Board (Acrylic paint & seed beads)
5 in. x 5 in.
This is the third portrait
I have made for my sister Nilou.
I created it as an underpainting
first and then beaded it with
different transparency beads to
give it a life-like appearance.
I used tweezers to place each
bead and the entire process
took many hours to complete.
Happy Birthday Nilou! :)
