Tea with Kristin

The scarlet hat and lipstick are attention grabbers in this painting, but what I enjoyed painting most was the delicate lacework of Kristin's blouse. The intricacy of her fingers and the warm light coming from the right also added interest for me.

  1. The color! That look! Those fingers! The lace!
    I can feel the warmth,(and the weight) of that cup!
    She's beautiful!
    Charles, is there a book in the works?!
