18 in Soho – oil painting of a city girl

We were all rushing around getting ready to head into the city for an evening of gallery openings in Soho.  I was caught by the color and pattern of my friend and her setting here putting on the finishing touches to her cool outfit and makeup.

Her punk hair and makeup she is applying, and her black corset dress contrast with the childlike pose of her feet.  The patterns made by her clothing and the bathroom tiles and rug fascinated me and contrasted with the loneliness of the other somewhat spare looking rooms.
