The Woman in the Red Hat

The woman in the red hat
Waits all alone
Beauty frozen, heart of stone
A Petticoat Lane Marionette
She loiters
silently
beneath a gas lamps glare
And prays that Jack the Ripper does not find her there.
by Julie/Wickedly Lovely 2011

This is a free hand digital painting.

Inspired by the women, who when Jack the Ripper was at large, had no choice but to take their life in their own hands and walk the streets of White chapel in Victorian times to put food on their children’s table.
