Contemporary portrait painter Brad Overton brings us Vega, the brightest star in the northern constellation of Lyra.  This striking calavera portrait delivers a cinematic view of a woman empowered by the concealment of a mask.  Her identity covered by her painted face and the generous bouquet of flowers in her hair, allows both the model and the viewer to connect on a deeper level.  We know her intimately, yet we do not know her at all.  But her presence in the room is bright like the Vega star.
