The Girl in the Red Coat - original oil pastel portrait painting
Finally back from vacation - hope everyone had a great New Year's - and ate their blackeyed peas! At least, that's what we eat in the South on the first day of the year and I wouldn't dare do otherwise. Who knows what could happen! This painting is really a memory painting of a young woman leaving a café where I was in late December and she seemed in a reflective mood. Maybe she was thinking of her resolutions for the new year. Or maybe nothing that dramatic, but I did love the scene and couldn't wait to record it when I got back to my studio. It's on dark green Pastelbord, 5 x 7". Thanks for stopping by - Happy New Year!
