"Shake All Your Blues Away" 6 x 6 oil

Our painting group, Girls Just Wanna Paint, was handed "chic" as the theme for September by our member Pam Copeman. She was unable to attend the meeting as she was at New York Fashion Week.  Pam epitomizes chic, so we painted her (as a surprise).  Pam bears an uncanny resemblance to famed dancer Ann Miller (in my opinion) so this is my painting "Shake All Your Blues Away", Pam as Ann Miller (Nadine Hale) in Easter Parade, one of my favorite movies.  

By the way, Ann Miller has the reputation of fastest tap dancer, ever.  (Not sure if 
 her record still stands, but check out a video of "Shake All Your Blues Away" and you'll see why.)
Or, watch the whole movie: Fred Astaire, Judy Garland, Ann Miller, Peter Lawford... just the ceasar salad scene is worth it!   Chic.


  1. One of my favorites...great job. You captured Pam's effervescence beautifully!

  2. She's awesome! Love her gloves.
    Happy Painting.
