In 2007 I saw a picture in a Magazine (I no longer have it), that was my inspiration for this piece. I did not copy the picture; I just used some elements and I gave a completely personal interpretation to it.
Obviously, I don’t know the photographers name, so I am not able to give the well deserved credentials, unfortunately.

    Betty, this is so delightful. Its color blocks and shadows, the frivolity of color, and the wonderfully outrageous people in the scene all add to the sense of expert composition and my sense of viewing a masterpiece.

  • What a FANTASTIC comment, dear Frannie!
    You may not imagine how happy you made me with your words.
    Thank you very, very much!

    I love it ♥

  • Thank you so much, my dear Kira.
    This is one of my latest creations that I painted for my upcoming Solo Exhibition in November, which unfortunately was moved in December, as I found out last night. I do not think that I will still want to do it in that Gallery. I will go ahead and find some different galleries where to exhibit my works.
    Love,
    Betty
