Eye Candy: Portrait of a Lady
















Women have been inspiring art since the prehistoric times. Just look at the iconic Venus of Willendorf, a fertility symbol carved out of limestone which marks one of history's earliest examples of art. From Manet's Olympia, inspired by his mistress/muse Victorine Meurnet, to Willem de Kooning's action paintings of abstracted women, to Warhol's iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe, ladies have proven themselves to be the quintessential muse for art as well as fashion and music, and the trend won't seem to die. Here are some of the renowned women whose style, talent, beauty, and energy inspires me, and one more you should get to know. :) As always, enjoy!

Now meet Jade; admirably stylish and adorable L.A. lady, stylist, and founder of Fauna Vintage.
Her lovely little blog boasts all the fashionable tidbits and tips that I Make Picture could only dream of (if we covered that kind of thing). We'll stick to visual art, and leave the fashion part to the experts...like Jade. :) I was lucky enough to photograph her recently as we plotted future collaborations. Look for my guest blog spot soon!
