At our local Italian restaurant, Marisa is a cheery and dutiful waitress. In this small painting, as you may be able to tell, I was enjoying the many contrasts of the scene.

I brought this image to some level of finish, but I may still fuss with it.

For reasons known to all painters: when you get a painting this far on the way to finished, it is called “the ugly stage”. But colors are blocked in, and one must only have faith.
