My wife Mary found her favorite old photo of her dear sister Trisha sitting in their front garden. She loved to sip coffee and listen to recorded music back in the 1960's. Mary suggested I might use the photo as the basis of a painting.
The garden plants around Trish in the photo were pretty, but I decided to eliminate them and create a different background for a more sparse, carefully composed look.
