Judy Parady's jewelry looks so good on a person. Go figure.

Angelica makes Americanos for me.
She, the necklace and the light in the cafe' were just perfect at that moment.
A confluence of beauty.

Bought these washers because I like the way they look.
Years later, when I dumped them out of the bag, they landed like this...

This still life was made the next day in my studio down the street from The VPH.
Later that night, I was struck by the similarities in the palette of these two images.
