Saudade

Oil on canvas, 48"h x 48"w, Item No. 16590,

As the title "Saudade" suggests, we see palpable longing and melancholy in the eyes of this Catrina.  It is a practiced look that comes from the depth of her being.  Contemporary portrait painter, Brad Overton masterfully captures the wholeness of this enigmatic nostalgia in her expression, while using the whole of his canvas to beautifully frame the bold bouquet of flowers carefully arranged in Catrina's hair.
