Oil on Raymar Panel
Why, yes, I do have a leather top hat! My obsession with hats started after cataract surgery. I had to protect my eyes from the glare of the sun...so I started wearing hats. I started with baseball caps and moved on to bowlers, fedoras and now the sky is the limit! I just love this leather top hat. I found the green tinted glasses at an antique fair. I am always looking for interesting props to add to my collection. I love having model dress up for painting sessions and photo shoots. This painting is the first of a series of self portrait featuring my hats!
