The candle seller’s red hat

This man was selling scented candles on a small table in front of the Crawford Art Gallery. The sense of smell is one of our most primitive and releases memories and stirs emotions. He was doing a brisk trade.
When I saw his woolly red hat I had to make a portrait of him!

    I LOVE “smelly, smelly” candles. I burn them all winter long.

    This gentleman’s hat is awesome! Reminds me of what my grandma would wear, only hers was ALWAYS purple.
