Bringing Tea - original oil figurative painting

 This painting is 14 x 11" on Fredrix archival canvas board.  An experiment, really, but aren't they all - at least for me!  I was in a restaurant where the servers were dressed in kimonos and the kimonos and the doors caught my eye.  I made some tiny sketches and am just doing some paintings from them.  This young woman was serving a huge gathering of people and at times, she seemed overwhelmed and a little unsure of herself.  A couple of times she paused for a second as she came through the door.  We were seated in a raised area, which provided a different perspective.
Thanks so much for dropping by Hackberry Street Studio! Sold
