The Villainess. Oil on canvas, 12″x14″. Sold.
Let’s talk lady villains. I’ve always had a fascination towards villainesses (I’m not even sure if that’s a word, but who cares). Particularly if they dress like Joan Crawford, own wild animals, and wear a monocle. That’s another fascination of mine, women with monocles. My favourite Slim Aarons photograph is Monocled Miss. She’s so glamorous and mysterious, lounging in bed with her newspaper and her honeydew melon breakfast. Also captured in that one image is the memory of my favourite board game ‘Clue’– Colonel Mustard perhaps? Anyway, I’m off to enjoy a martini and plot someone’s demise.
