The Millinery

Amber brought in this striking green crushed velvet dress, and I immediately thought of the red hat that my wife found recently at a thrift store. I don't know if the composition really conveys the sense of a shop, but I went with the title anyway.
oil on linen panel, 8 x 6 inches, 2010


  1. I don't care for the red/green combination. I'm not sure a redhead should wear a red hat. I think that's against the "redhead law". However, the painting is beautifully done, as your paintings always are. I'm glad your shoulder is better.

  2. I love the red/green combination Charles!

    Full of life and beauty, I think red & green
    help to portray this!
    I love how the red relects on her face in the mirror.
    Also the curveness of the backside against the pink wall! Very Beautiful to see this!
    Yes you orchestrate a wonderful painting, I admire your artistry!

  3. Você tem um talento natural para expressar a figura humana!!!
    Muito bom trabalho!! Sua cores vibrantes dão sentimento ao trabalho.
