"Portrait of Mrs. Benjamin Barker, Durham, NC. 1926)

Not for Sale. (archival inks and watercolor. 15"x17" framed)

Well, trotting along according to my draconian production schedule, I've just finished this "portrait" of Karen Barker. I should emphasize that she's a multi-award-winning pastry chef and the author of several highly-regarded cookbooks, in addition to owning (along with her husband) a restaurant which has consistently, for 20 or so years, won numerous national awards. She does not, as a very general rule, present herself as "MRS. Benjamin Barker". She's also very forgiving, for which I suppose I should be grateful....
