I had a compulsion to paint figurative again. I'm pretty happy with this little painting. It captures a mood and the composition is pretty strong. I would love it if the things I learn from composing still lifes could transfer over into all the genres. Not sure it's that simple, but I think there is some transference.


  1. Very nice, warm painting. It evokes a mood of nostalgia for me.

    Did your mother ever braid your hair? I wore braids until about the fifth grade. Then I got a home permanent. I cried at the results.

  2. Virginia- sounds a lot like my hair history. Those old perms were a disaster.
