Something about portraits done in oil just capture my attention. I found this at an antique store in Pomona last weekend for $25. The framing alone would cost that much but this painting of a woman, who looks between 20 and 30 years of age is very striking. There is the all-black top that she is wearing and that sliver of a red chair on her back just projects a certain melancholy about her face. What was she thinking at the time she sat?
