"Raspberry Beret"

5 x 7"
oil on panel

I have a cold.  I felt like painting, despite my fuzzy brain, but it had to be loose.  And really, this is how I really love to paint with oils.  Loose, quick and done by the end of the day.  The title came to me from a Prince song I haven't heard in a long time.

From the Art Institute of Chicago, a young woman stands before Grant Wood's iconic painting 'American Gothic'.
