Beauty is in the Eye of the Buyer?

 I love to find original art 
at an affordable price
and I have a particular appreciation for acrylic and oil paintings....

Two years ago I found this piece
on ebay by an American artist,  Neal Turner
 who lives in France....

His paintings have now been featured in a Hollywood film
which seems to have made him more popular
and subsequently .....
out of my budget!

Oh and please believe me....
I understand the sensitivity issues with art.
She has provided some lively conversations at dinner parties
and certainly confirmed the
statement that art is personal!
As one friend says.....we can all agree that it is the painting of a woman!

But, with another birthday well behind me
the search was on for another piece of art....
preferably something with a bit of texture!
And, I found it.

It is hard to see in this image but the use of a palette knife allows the paint to
provide a sense of texture which I love!

I am sure that this one will also spark some discussion at our next gathering...

I wonder what they will see in this piece?
Any ideas?

À tantôt!!
