This painting reminds me of a self possessed diva on a stage somewhere. She is fully in command and brimming with self confidence.I remember one of the first Barbie outfits that came out. It was a black narrow evening gown with a tulle flounce at the bottom. It came with a microphone stand for Barbie to deliver concerts. That girl is multitalented! I see her as a diva just as this strong vase of flowers.
