I thought I would risk showing you how crazy things can get. And how sometimes things just happen. What’s crazy is to think we control the agenda!

What’s that expression?   “If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans”.

So here you have my original painting of “Ms J”. I have been struggling with sending her packing, as I just couldn’t seem to make it work. Sometime you need to keep going and PUSH, and then sometimes you need to know when to move on. (No I don’t have the answer to which, when!)

So I ended up blotting Ms. J out slightly, enough that her character was still there.

Then turned her upside down and started to work on another of the “Masters- thru my eyes” series.

Madam Pompadour by Modigliani was my inspiration.

And here’s the process!

And here she is — the Madame!
