    I swear a real painting of this is featured somewhere on AWMOK. Without question, it was based on this. And this was based Audry Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s.

    I just realized it was stupid not to look for the painting given that there are categories here at AWMOK that make it very easy to search for things like this. Nessa passed this painting up once but thankfully took a shot: https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2009/10/22/kitschy-cat-painting/

    Denny’s have you ever looked at the painting category page? if not, click it now. Quite a great snapshot of your painting career.

    Wow. Never really clicked on it before. I just got back from that section. If it wasn’t for you!

    I want to hit up the storage unit and photograph all that art in the front of the unit, on the left side. I am still jonesing to see that Joan Crawford painting!

    Thank you for everything Allee. Thank you for bringing paint brushes and canvases into my life.

    I am STILL kicking myself for not buying that painting, but I am now looking for a copy of this record at yard sales instead to fill the gap left in my soul… haha. :)

      I knoooow! The deal is, I go to a lot of the estate sales that this person in town runs. I go to enough of them to know what sells fast and what hangs around. The way the sales work… stuff goes to 25% off or 50% or 75% off the second day, depending on how long you wait. So, I honestly thought nobody else would buy this thing and I could go back and get it for half price. Alas, someone bought it at full price! I was really surprised, because paintings usually hang around until the end. That means at least one person in town has taste as good as ours! I wish I knew who bought it. At least I was smart enough to take a picture.
