A nasty cold has had hold of my house for the last two weeks, so I have not been able to do much of anything, painting included. This weekend I am finally feeling nearly myself again, and my mom came for a visit with the kids – so I ran to the studio to try to finish up Salon du Thé (previous posts here and here). My mom was not only helpful in babysitting, but also with a little constructive criticism, solicited by me. I first asked my husband if anything seemed wrong or stood out too much and his answer was “I don’t know – its art! It can’t be wrong.” Good advice, but not what I was looking for at the time.
Here is the final version – 16×16, oil on gallery profile canvas.
