Carrot Girl

She cried and cried until she turned into a carrot.

Sorry I can't expand on this painting...,
I met her at "Life In A Day" (2011) a documentary by Kevin Macdonald and 17 Co-Directors (that's right!)

Her tears were real and I had a hard time painting once started

Neighbourly Surveillance

Look for the appartment vignette in Drugstore Cowboy (1989) with an engaged extra.
I was on a riff, I ditched the screenshot and pushed the amorality of her deed.

Michelle Williams

The movie: "Shutter Island" (2010) Martin Scorsese - Director

This is definitely one of Michelle's prettier poses before she is immolated in our heroes dream, yes IMMOLATED, and it's haunting
.... Scorsese is a genius.

Veronica Lake

Veronica Lake is the definition of "American Icon"
Most of us are too young to be acquainted with actresses beyond Marilyn Monroe, but Veronica's sensitivy, smarts and sass, are continually reanimated as in Jessica Rabbit (as herself) in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"
It's all about the  peekaboo do

Joanne Woodward

Clara Varner (Joanne Woodward) in "The Long, Hot Summer" (1958) Martin Ritt -Director, has sass large enough to neutralize Papa Vill Varner and Ben Quick....

Agnes Stewart: Why aren't there enough men to go around?
Clara: There's no shortage. Just of the right kind.
Agnes Stewart: Ooh, I'm not fussy on that subject.
Clara: Neither am I.

Elliot Gould

Elliot resurrects Private Eye Phillip Marlowe in Robert Altman's "The Long Goodbye" (1973)
Too cool for school, he chain-smokes his way through each scene grumbling like "Wimpy",  contretemps with cops and robbers and never a hint of agitation.
And the scenes of his 5 attractively adoring hippie neighbors clad in what only G-d meant them to wear....
So 70's and so Altman
