  2. Love the red on red, and the subtle difference between these. The painting vibrates as a result, and your choice to give her brown hair works as the go between against the black and gray clothing, like a liaison.
    Was wondering if you ever do teeth? You must, somewhere in your vast library of faces. Should take a cruise through your site to see. Have been enjoying your blog. Keep it up!

  3. Thank you, Jane, for your comment about the painting and for enjoying the blog! As for teeth, it's been a long time since they showed up in a painting ... like 1990 I think.

  4. I love the focus your people have, even when they're doing everyday things. I have one of yours in my office. I wonder what the woman is thinking of every single time.
