Fashion photography like that of Richard Avedon was the inspiration for this painting. 'Olivia' is meant to have a look that
is mysterious, aloof, haunting, unapproachable, unattainable....and yet glamorous and, most important of all,
fashionable. I wanted Olivia to capture the essence of a Christian Dior fashion model circa the mid-1950's. The name
Olivia was derived from the color palette, the background is rendered in shades of olive green a color I had not used in
previous paintings. I purposely kept most of the tones dark, Olivia's gown is a somber violet-gray while her cape is
violet-blue.
