I have painted this lovely young lady quite a few times now after being introduced to her by Jeremy Lipking. www.lipking.com. I always enjoy her sweet soul and the energy she brings to the table.
I have also collected a vast number of slips, kimonos, flimsy vintage type clothing and yummy paintable things from around the world. Students always ask me: "Where do you find all these things?"
It is also the first time I got to paint my new studio bench which I waited for months to buy after spotting it at Charme D'Antin in Los Angeles. It is over 100 years old and completely impractical. I suspect it was made from an old french bed headboard. But I love it and wonder at all the people who sat on it or slept under it that elaborate headboard. Maybe I am the first to paint it?
Gratitudes to Stephanie, that red satin slip, and my new old bench.
