A Belated B-Day Tribute to Clara Bow...

My fave silent film actress, Clara Bow, first dubbed "The Brooklyn Bonfire" and then "The IT! Girl" woulda been 104 this past July 29th. I was out of town and couldnt do a b-day post until today. Instead of the usual pic assortment, I decided to post some of the graphite or Colored pencil portraits I've done of Clara over the last several years.





This last one is still my fave of them all. The most recent one is 3 years old and I know I could do a much better job of it now so I'm hoping to do a new Clara Colored pencil drawing before the year is out. I miss drawing her!

Oh my goodness-- those are marvelous! I don't think I could choose a favorite...all of them seem to capture her, don't they?

well, that's cleared up that mystery, then. . .
