    “Well, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat” – or at least the makings for one.

    It’s not only the eyes in the paintings that are following her around the room.

    I’m not sure I’ve captured you, my dear. You’re a really piquant pixie, but I haven’t enough pixels!

    I think you’ll do nicely, Penelope. There’s a lot of veiled promise there!

    “Pardon my fixated stare Miss Chickadee. The blood seems to be draining from my brain again. I may need to double the amount of saltpeter in my diet if I ever hope to finish this thing, and my doctor says I’m already taking enough of the stuff to stop a bull moose in rut.”

    It was much cheaper to get a painting of you on an outdoor adventure than to actually go on one, and your friends would never know the difference once you put it up on your wall.

    Are the paintings on the wall paintings of real paintings?

    “Thanks for letting me be like this for a while. I love being nude. Wish I could do it all day. But, I have to get dressed and go home to my frumpy old mom and sisters. See you tomorrow. Can we try one over there on the bed tomorrow? Tee-hee.” ~ Every Old Painter’s Imagination Throughout History

    This one is finished and I’m calling it Avant. We need to try several poses and positions for the next one in this series I’m calling Après.

    In the Artist’s Studio

    https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Carl_Johann_Spielter_In_the_artist%27s_studio.jpg 

    (best viewed with Google Chrome, with Google Translate added to chrome://extensions, which can automatically translate most pages as necessary) has info and links that point to info about this painting.

     

    https://www.the-athenaeum.org/people/detail.php?ID=7604 

    http://www.askart.com/artist/Carl_Johann_Spielter/11131624/Carl_Johann_Spielter.aspx 

    both have info, or links that point to more info, about this artist (again, the last can be read in full for free on Fridays), perhaps in addition to than what’s perhaps indirectly pointed to by the title URL: 

    https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Johann_Spielter 

    and links it points to (again, Chrome can automatically translate as necessary). This is the first work by him used here.

    I took off my clothes, I shaved half my hair off – all I ask is that you don’t hang the painting on the wall with the rest of them.
