12"x12", oil on canvas. Its not really a thimble but some other small shiny thing. While I was working on another painting, an interior of a flower shop, from photos and sketches I noticed the violets in a little corner of a photo. I remember seeing them and wanting to paint them at the time. They came back to me like an unexpected gift. This is more of the work from my time with E. in Paris. (Other posts from those trips are here and here). I feel like Bonnard and Vuillard are there in the patterns.
