"I've always believed a portrait
captures a human being far better
than a photograph." Lawrence from
the movie "Monsters Ball"

Here I am, sitting alone again,
another night at this "damned cafe'"
Waiting, always waiting for
someone, anyone to ease the
loneliness burning inside.
No one would know I was
in so much pain,
for when I dress up
and put on My make-up,
I become a different woman.
After all...
It was a night at the Bijou.
Nothing could ever get in the way.
Besides what would I ever do without it...

The sketch was referenced through
a photo taken by French Born,
Transylvania Artist-Gyula Brassi (1899-1984).
The original photo is entitled:
"Bijou" of the Montamartre Cabarets
from "Paris by Night" 1933

This is the color version of
my sketch which was accomplished
through PSP7 and Corel. The Frame,
Rose, Potted Plants, Wall Plate,
Suitcase, Book Stack and Corner
Angels are PSP7 tubes...most of which
were found at Jazzi's Tubes.

I hope you like it...Cheryl ;)

Wow I remember this from your site! Great work! I started a pic yesterday and I am having such a hard time with position. I am ready to trash it and move on back to my coding world...

**Thanks for the PM! I will post my sketch again and see if anyone can help me with it. It is one of those rush jobs and I don't ever like to rush in my artwork!

I like the painting, reminds me of dead artists. Rousseau, or Van Gogh.
But, the frame is very distracking and takes the eye away from the art. I frame should not do this.

You may well be right. I'll have to think about this. Thanks for the input.
