Charcoal on watercolour paper - 7 x 6 1/2 inches
Inspired by a photo of Joan Crawford (1905-1977)
and a love old movie stars and of that era.
The title comes from the writings of Crawford by F. Scott Fitzgerald
"Joan Crawford is doubtless the best example of the flapper, the girl you see in smart night clubs, gowned to the apex of sophistication, toying iced glasses with a remote, faintly bitter expression, dancing deliciously, laughing a great deal, with wide, hurt eyes. Young things with a talent for living"
