Finally I'm back in the studio and today I was able to finish this study of Kristin in pale pink. I was somewhat uncertain about how to handle the background color, but ended up going with a slate blue that was neither indoors nor out, and I left it at that. It reads a little lighter and bluer than it reproduces here.

  1. Charles, you capture the beauty of women better than anyone I can think of.
    This painting radiates so well, the soft color
    and the feminine side of life.
    She is precious.
