The New Beret; casein tempera on panel; 8" x 10"

"An artist's only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on her own terms, not anyone else's." - J.D. Salinger

Ah, the famous beret! You can take the most ordinary objects and make real art with them. I think you've achieved perfection!

Thanks, Jan! Don't you just love that quote? I've been riding high on it all day.

There's a painting of orange tulips on the easel as I write. I'm trying to finish it before dinner time - that gives me 1 hour - we'll see.

Thanks again :)
