This is another vintage mugshot.  I really struggled with this one.  Painting from a black and white photograph taken decades and decades ago is not an easy task.  However, when I saw her glasses I had to paint her.  She had a scarf wrapped around her neck that I painted and then wiped it out.  I'm afraid it did me in.  I'm pleased with how she turned out with those iconic glasses.


  1. Wow Linda, you caught so much expression with this!

  2. Beautiful portrait, Linda. These vintage photos are wonderful reference pictures.. Great job.

  3. I always wonder...what they DID to land in jail! She seems such a respectable type. Got involved with a bad man, would be my guess! I am glad you immortalized her. You did a good job.

  4. The glasses are perfectly painted Linda. :) Love the shine on them.
