New shoe painting


"Pink is the navy blue of India" 
Diana Vreeland 

 This is with a twinkle to all my friends from India here in blogland. Even though i've never been to that mysterious and exiting country, it's colors seem to be in my blood somehow. Pink and new shoes - what better way is there to add some extra energy and exitement to the week to come?

Here, the  crisp, clear light of late summer days shines into my office and brings out every detail and color so brightly. I just love this time of year, don't you? Come and have espresso with me!
