I don’t think this was a very good day for Isadora and her handsome driver.  I still don’t know the specifics about that fateful day.  What I remember is that she was out cavorting with her driver and her scarf or something got wrapped around the spokes of the wheel.

    Excellent historic portrayal. You are most correct about the facts.

    Really like this one. Love the lines on the front of the car. If you look at the front end long enough it’s a face. Also love the Pigmy Will inspired hat the chauffeur whose name looks like it would be Pierre is wearing. Is that the brand of the car scribbled beneath him? And Isadora still looks happy and bright despite her demise coming in .3 seconds.

    Here I am laughing out loud again at 11:30pm! That is the name brand of the car that you see scribbled there.

    I didn’t even realize I was painting a “Pigmy hat”. I was trying to give him a hat that looked french or something. So I wonder if the Pigmy might be french too? Pigmy is all about inspiration.

    By the way, how’s Feathers making out?
