“Faith” by Cherie Fruehan.
I have loved this painting since I first saw it as part of Cherie’s ‘Faces’ exhibit.
I love the simple focus on the face, no hair or anything else to divert your focus away. The unfinished birch wood helps draw your attention towards the face as well. The bold color of her lipstick and the strikingly blue eyes makes this painting mesmerizing. The faith shines through in her eyes and you feel like you are getting a glimpse of her soul as you gaze into them.
