First Touch asks whether it is real, or is it a myth? Can true love only come after getting to know someone?


I created First Touch with a painting knife using two different mark making techniques, which resulted in a lovely textured surface. The flowers are done impasto style, in which undiluted paint is applied thickly onto the canvas so that it stands out from the surface. This decadent surface of different textures brings the painting to life.


This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes satine varnished and ready to hang.

    I package the painting as follows:

    • Glassine paper or acid-free archival tissue paper

    • Plastic sheeting and poly wrap

    • Hard plastic corner protectors

    • Cardboard box
