just who is thelma ritter? (graphite in moleskine)

The backward glance is interesting but what sold it to me was the heavy overcoat she's wearing - it was already heavy and I've made it over so. No one tends to wear heavy coats these days, and very soon no one will need to.

When I was very small I did wear some heavy coats. Now I do the layer thing.

Wonderful portrait. I am enjoying the juxtaposition of the stylized flowers near her. Another great piece.
