Acrylic portrait of a young Aretha Franklin - my personal interpretation in my own folk art style. 10 x 8" canvas panel in an ornate frame (this frame is NOT wired). Total dimension approximately 14 x 12".
This is an original, one-of-a-kind painting, signed, and wrapped carefully for shipment to you. I am certain it will be lovely hanging on your favorite wall among your art collection.
In a simple cream colored frame!
"A YOUNG ARETHA"
by Stacey Torres 2017
Born in Jamaica, NY in 1953, Stacey Torres is an African American folk artist living in New Castle, IN. Her primary focus are women of color, painting with an abundance of color and media inspired by her Caribbean heritage.
A self-taught artist, Ms. Torres' love of painting began at a very early age. After a 40 year hiatus, while spending time with her mother who was in her final stages of Alzheimer's, she began to paint again for emotional therapy and support. This practice continues today.
