I know painters are always on the lookout for an inspired moment, when everything is perfect, and this was one of them.
One morning while standing overlooking the ocean with my model, a breath of air lifted the brim on her hat and the image felt perfect to me. In the studio, I reconstructed that image, always trying to maintain in my mind that moment. I love this painting!
So do I! And the Woodhousian name 'Duffy', too!
