Oil on Canvas
This piece was painted from memory of my laundry lady, but she is holding flowers of red against a green background in a sun splashed room. I will freely tell you I start to draw her without much idea where she will go, and this time it was here. She is who I paint when I am relaxing and thinking of what to paint and many times I think these end up being my best works. No giving myself pressure, ever, when I paint her. The light in the painting was inspired by the light that slashes across my studio in the late mornings. A favorite time to work.
