She reminds me of one of those sexed up 60's beauties, like a Jane Fonda type character. I like the use of multiple mediums they help bring her to life.

not thought of Jane Fonda - liked her character in Klute - always thought of this as a painting of a temptress - parallels with Klute - she was quite intimidating to paint
I have a record somewhere of all the changes it went through - if I find it I will send you a link

I always think of him - on film at least - as seeming self centred and vain

Oh yes, he was quite awful from what I gather, not the biggest fan of him as a person... I don't know I just thought of that quote.

well there are a lot of creative folk out there who say the same...I remember when the Who guitarist said his ugly face was why he wanted to be famous!
