    Loving this new series, and I probably don’t say this too often – but I think your sense of style is BRILLIANT! Maybe that painting’s a Mary Cassat?

    Ooo love marilyn. She looks so simple and feminine, an interesting contrast to what we’re used to.

    Hi I love this series and introduced your blog to one of my students who has been photographing flowers and was looking for a new direction. Taking inspiration from you she is going to be doing a series looking at fashion images and images of flowers.

    Saw your wonderful work on The Clothes Horse. To say the least it’s absolutely fantastic and I have never seen anything quite like it.

    Love

    My passion is to collect and sell one of a kind costume jewelry, both new and previously owned. In my shows, I always try to find unexpected ways to pair the color or design of a jewelry piece with another item, not necessarily clothing, in order to evoke a deeper sensory reaction in the viewer… and hopefully, buyer! I find your pairings to evoke this sensory reaction in me.

    The title of the painting you were looking for: Painting “Schoolgirl”, by Russian artist Naniana Gorb (b.1935)
