An Aspiring Actress Arrives In Hollywood. Pictured Here In 1948 Holding Her Good Luck Charm. Oil on canvas, 10″x12″. Sold.
I didn’t exactly do much research on the time period for this particular painting and I’m fairly certain that her hair and blouse may be completely wrong for 1948, but it’s all about ‘make believe’ and I was being lazy. She also looks like a hybrid between Scarlett Johansson and Katherine Heigl and I have no explanation for this- although this pleases John a great deal. I actually saw him sneaking into my studio on a few occasions to take a look at the painting in progress. As he did this, he rubbed his hands together. Not quite creepy villainous hand rubbing- more like what you do on a really cold day. Actually I stand corrected… because no matter how you describe it, unless it is a really cold day, hand rubbing is very creepy.
