With all the recent hat paintings, I thought I was done with hats for a while, but one more came along ... a "spin-off" from the woman wearing a blue hat in my previous picture, Hat Party. I liked the gesture and the reflection in the mirror, and thought the two elements with some changes would make a good composition on their own.

I'll add another image, of another woman in a red beret, painted twenty years ago. Perhaps an interesting contrast between the two, visually and psychologically: one an analogous harmony of warm colors ... the other a complementary harmony of green and red.
