Yet another version which I am quite happy with. Barbara found the absolutely beautiful, silver teapot that you see a bit of in front, at a "brocante" (flea market) in the area for 5 euros! I was sooo envious!

Liza, this is such a strong dramatic interesting composition - I love the painting. Your friend reminds me of an actress I once saw in Design for Living by Noel Coward. Meant as a high compliment!

Hi Marcia,
I am very pleased you like my painting! My friend is in deed a beautiful woman although I haven't been able to capture a true likeness yet. It's as if there's a bit of her in every painting I've done of her so far but none of them does her justice really. So I will have to try again...

Hi Liza,

This is just a gorgeous painting. I love the composition and the big silver teapot. The tablecloth is super and the angle is perfect.
