I am a fan of figure hugging little jackets. This is my favorite one - bright red and made of snugly bouclé wool.

This has a nice flair. And the cast shadow on the wall is perfect!

Hi Liza,

This is glorious. I like how the one sleeve is behind so the jacket looks animated. Super.

Formidable, Liz, j'aime beaucoup cette ombre sur le mur, et, comme le dit Barbara, la manche derrière anime l'ensemble, vraiment j'aime tes ocmpositions!
Et j'ai eu la même veste dans les années 80..? en laine bouclée, un ton plus foncé..

Sorry for the late reply, Kim. Somehow I missed this day's comments. I am pleased you like the painting - thanks so much!

Hi Barbara,
so sorry for replying this late here! It took me a little fiddling around until I found a solution for the composition. With the sleeves just hanging down on either side it looked so boring and I also wanted to show that the sleeves have a button at the bottom. So I am pleased you think it worked! Thank you, my dear!

Salut Sylviane,
Merci beaucoup pour ton commentaire. En effet, j'ai acheté cette veste dans les année 80 mais je la porte toujours - elle est classique et indémodable!
