This painting was a commission for Bob Moffitt and his partner. After seeing my dress series in an exhibition (Georgetown, Washington, DC), they wanted their “portrait” painted, using of a few of their favorite things.

Here is a photo of the painting and the still life, side by side in the studio. At the end of a work session, I would turn out the light causing the still life to look flat while the painting remained forever lit.
