This painting is based on the famous silent film star Norma Talmadge.  A specialist in melodrama, Talmadge was one of the most elegant and glamorous film stars of the roaring twenties.  

I once saw a photograph of her and I instantly fell in love with her attitude and sense of style.  In this particular painting, I love her confident pose. Her expression has several interpretations.  Is she daydreaming?  Is she bored, sad or content? 

Women are the subject of many of my paintings.   I am intrigued with expressing many aspects of their lives, with a particular interest in romance, sexual intrigue, friendships, relationships, communication, and empowerment.
