Young Woman Smoking

$100.00 plus shipping
Young Woman Smoking  11x14  Oils on canvas panel

This was painting came from a photo in Jill Bennet's blog Menton Daily Photo.  I think that I will like this painting better after I make a few, small changes/modifications.

I'll continue trying to make a decent photo of this painting - until then . . . .  sigh.


  1. Why always the sigh, Ken? I think this is lovely. Very brave for you to go so dark, and it really works.

  2. Hi Liz, I was agonizing over taking a photo of a VERY shiny and reflective painting. I sure do struggle with making photos of paintings! :-) I'm pretty happy with the painting - I was trying to capture the mood of a young person being alone. She seems pensive. Maybe her companion is late or hasn't been very nice?

  3. Nice work! I love the atmosphere and the sparkle on ther earing...
    Hope she stops smoking, though... ;)

  4. Hi, Carolina! Thank you for the compliment. :-) I suppose that she will stop smoking - one way or another? :-()
