Dori DeCamillis' Latest Art Series

Good Morning!  I want to share with you my art teacher Dori DeCamillis's latest art series.  Per her website, her paintings are self-portraits depicting her own mind-states. Each piece is a character in a private mythology designed to personify her ever-changing thought patterns, habits, and perspectives. She is currently writing a book about the process of painting this series.

All paintings are oil on board at 16" x 20" and titles are taken from the sonnets of Shakespeare. 

This one is my favorite:

Until next time...

Blessings!
