This abstract figurative painting in inspired by Hollywood.  Who is the “Mistress of the House”?  I love the movies and I’m often inspired by film.  I can’t help but think about an old movie when I look at this painting.  She seems to come from a different period in time, maybe the old Hollywood glamour of the 1930’s or 1940’s.   She’s the hostess of the best parties, her husband is successful, and she owns the most beautiful home.

What a time that was!!  Silk dresses, high heels, extravagant jewelry.  Wow!

This is my story about her, who do you think she is?
