Saucy Siamese, “Scarlett O’Hara”, is dressed in the green frock that wasn’t deemed modest enough for a barbecue… but it was perfect for man-chasing! Although she had scores of hapless suitors, including the dark rogue Rhett Butler, she only had eyes for Ashley Wilkes.
“She raised her chin and her pale, black-fringed eyes sparkled …. with courage rising and made the plans that a sixteen-year-old makes when life has been so pleasant that defeat is an impossibility and a pretty dress and a clear complexion are weapons to vanquish fate.”
~ Margaret Mitchell, “Gone With the Wind”
“Scarlett O’Hara” is a 5″x7″ acrylic painting, on illustration board, that I donated to the 9th Annual “Art for the Animals” charity auction, supporting Guiding Eyes for the Blind.
Archival prints of Scarlett O’Hara can be purchased here in my shop, and from me personally at shows.
