A 2nd tribute to Bettie Page - 13-08-14
A second ode to pin-up and 1950s' U.S. celebrity Bettie Page. I'm thinking of cross-overs here - between realism and cubism. Still not there, I think because I think the forms are rather 'closed' in spite of the fact that I like the roundish shapes of the musculature on her back.
