12×9 original pastel on sanded paper, framed, $225 plus shipping
This maiden seems mesmerized with her cup. Is it half empty? Is it half full? What is supposed to be in this cup? I like every painting to be a bit of a mystery. I start tight, building my framework, then work my way to loose and confident. The grand finale consists of dashes and swatches of color with my buttery, softest pastels.
