The Little Black Dress

It’s a classic – the little black dress (LBD) – a uniform in so many circles. Think Jackie O or Audrey Hepburn – the lady dressed in a sheath with pearls. Think Mary Boone – the gallery owner and her galleristas with Pradas clicking on polished cement floors. Think collectors, artists, designers and architects.

One night, I came home from a museum party with images, fresh in my head, of the women in LBDs and men in black. My sketches and line drawings of the remembered black dresses were the inspiration for painting. It seems fitting that this painting is in the contemporary home and collectionof a Dallas woman who is an architect. She wears a lot of black and wears it well.
