a good day for a painting.

i have been keeping my eye out for a good vintage oil portrait for some time now, but you'd be surprised how hard it is to find the right one.  all the properly done, good-looking portraits are too expensive for my budget, and all the ones within my budget tend to have peculiar expressions or slight deformities of some kind (see here).  however i think i finally found my girl!  not only was she affordable (under $50!), but her fantastic 50s retro character, loose brushstrokes, and oversized bang curl won me over.  now she just needs a name ... betty sue?
