# 16 Grey Homburg...12 x 12"

Well, here it is already past the halfway point on this year's 30 paintings in 30 days! The time has gone swiftly and it has been wonderful and inspiring to see one another's work. To know how we each struggle with the solution to get our end result we are searching for; our unique voice...

Today I had difficulty with the brush hearing that voice, so I will let this one rest a few days, or more before I go back to make some adjustments.

The ' Homburg' is the name of the hat so ever popular back in the 30's and 40's...along with the 'Fedora' . It is amazing what you learn as you paint....when you investigate your subject, especially since I am so fond of wearing my hat collection. I even own a Fedora and it was my favorite until my cowgirl hat came along!
