Behind the Painting:
I’ve always been inspired by the diverse women featured in The Beatles’ music. From Eleanor Rigby to the unnamed lady in Norwegian Wood, wouldn’t you love to know more about these mysterious “birds?”
I’ve always pictured John Lennon’s “Polythene Pam” as a cigar smoking jazz club entertainer, in masculine attire, with underlying feminine qualities. She’s the type of headliner you’d find among the artistic crowd, in tiny clubs surrounded by neon lights, in cities like Hamburg, Paris, London, and of course Liverpool.
