Portraits by Nicole Jeffords

What do these Eyes See? (Lytle), 50" x 40", I played with space and an extremely limited palette to bring out the alienation I sensed in the sitter's personality; Girl Close up (Arden IV), 16" x 20", Arden's face with an emphasis on her far-seeing eyes and head of crazy Medusa curls; Arden in a Summer Dress, 18" x 24" Flimsy lilac over peach pink skin and a bony skeleton; Girl with Red Hair, 16" x 20" The pale translucence of this young child’s face combined with her soft red hair and sad and solemn expression made me itch to paint her. She was three years old at the time of this picture.; Kris, 20" x 20", The quality of light in the photo I worked from for this portrait of Kris brought out her inner depth, beauty and spirituality in such a spectacular way that the painting almost seemed to paint itself.
