This is another of my paintings for my "Mostly Victorian" show in Weaverville, June 4 - June 26. My model is wearing a beautiful hat made by Dale Pifer out of Fortuna. Dale was nice enough to let me go through her hat collection and choose a few to borrow. This one is 12" x 9 oil on canvas Raymar panel. I put her in this beautiful old world European style carved frame.

I've been working on a collection of Victorian paintings over the last 7 months....my show opens June 4th at Highland Art Center in Weaverville, Ca. I posed models in my studio in costume...it's been a challenge...and fun! This is the first time I've concentrated on a body of work with a theme in mind. It is interesting what develops along the way. This is one of my favorites. 12" x 16" oil on linen.
