Emmaline was inspired by both my best friend since kindergarden and a Russian artist at an art show up by the North Shore of Lake Superior. My friend is a redhead, but when we went up to the North Shore together one summer she saw this piece at an art show with a red head in it and she really wanted it. However, someone was already buying it. I decided that I could paint something like that for her. The Russian artist's painting featured a redhead girl from more of a Renaissance era. I decided to go with more of a eerie, but delicate approach. Emmaline now belongs to my friend to try and supplement the painting she couldn't get at the North Shore.
