My passion is writing, art, and flower gardening.
I love to paint, create, dance, sing, and spoil our grandchildren.
I write and paint. I share my life with Stephen. He is
My husband and my best friend. We have six grown children
who have blessed us greatly with sixteen grandchildren.
Sincerely, Beverly J Raffaele

yes, you are right, Flaming June was a challenge, I reproduce the masters to learn technique, like the sheer gown. I can apply it elsewhere now. Like Springtime, by Pierre Cot also a reproduction of mine. Once, the NY Metropolitan Museum used to allow you to sit and copy the masters right in the rooms with the paintings. I went to a private art studio for 7 yrs before I decided to do portraits a Art Student league in New York City.
