8x8 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord
For purchase information click HERE.
This young woman was arrested in March of 1928.  I found it interesting that most of the mugshots of this era included three photos, a profile, a straight on, and a full body portrait.  Some of the people in these mugshots had some interesting clothing and poses.  Some of the clothing were very dapper, especially with the men.  To view other painted vintage mugshots take a look at Kathleen Coy's blog.


  1. Ma chère Linda, j'ai manqué plusieurs de vos publications, mais ce soir j'ai eu beaucoup de plaisir à admirer l'ensemble de vos peintures...
    Une si belle touche qui vous caractérise...
    C'est une bonne idée que de peindre ces personnages... Il y a tant de choses qui doivent leur passer par la tête au moment des captures photographiques... donc tant de choses à traduire.
    Je trouve cette peinture très intéressante et j'aime la lumière qui vient caresser le personnage et lui donne de l'importance, semblable à un artiste sur la scène... Mais quelle scène !
    Gros bisous à vous.

  2. Very interesting subject. At quick glance I thought it was maybe an old family photo. I like your triple take on her. Your "Paper Bag" is so good too!

  3. I really like thhis twist on the mugshot. Very interesting!

  4. I really like these vintage mugshots! Interesting that they let her keep her hat on for the full body photo. Nicely done!

  5. I like this one, Linda! I think its interesting to see the three together...well done!

  6. Wonder what she did? This lady doesn't look all that evil. Well painted, Linda

  7. Love the triple paintings Linda......fascinating and beautifully painted!
