The Red Cloak
Oil on birch panel, 2010, 5"x 7"
Todays painting is of a young lady stopping to pose for a picture, while on some sort of bicycle trip. It was from a batch of "found photos" a friend has posted. The original photo was in black and white, and I painted it how I thought things might look on that day, who knows how long ago. Judging from the photograph this was probably taken in the 1940's or early fifties. What other color could a person paint a cloak on a young lady taking a trip? Red is the only option.
