Slick Sally

Slick Sally  8 x 10"oil on canvas
Meet Sally, she's been busted. Sally is a little confused about being busted as you can see but still manages to crack a little smile in her blissful confusion. What did Sally do to get arrested? Maybe she is a thief, maybe a really good pick pocket, and a compulsive liar that has convinced herself she isn't doing anything wrong. I think Sally tells her family she sells women's accessories in a high end department store (and gets a discount on merchandise) and that's why she always wears new rings and bracelets.

...or this could all be a lie and Sally was just walking on the wrong street corner at the wrong time of night and started talking to these 'nice ladies' that were giving a lost man directions, who happened to be a cop. Poor gullible Sally. 

It could be true.

Intoxicated Irma

Intoxicated Irma  8x10 oil on canvas

Meet Irma, she's been busted. I imagine Irma likes to have fun, possibly be the life of the party, doing impressions, cracking jokes, you name it. I believe Irma was having a good old time; she had a long work week at the plant and headed straight for the pub friday after work to meet up with all the other regulars. (Irma took an apartment for the reason that it is walking distance to her favorite home away from home, O'Malley's Pub)  Irma is not the drunken fighter type, she is happy and in fact loves everyone and was probably picked up for public intoxication while stumbling home.

Convict Carla

convict Carla  8 x 10" oil on canvas

Meet Carla, she's been busted. Carla is the second woman convict in my Busted Betty Series. What was Carla busted for? Well Carla is normally patient and looks pretty innocent but she has a tough side if provoked. Carla might be a waitress (by the looks of her clothes) in a 24 hour diner, working the late shift and maybe got sick of the drunks coming in after a night of drinking acting like fools. Some fool might have gotten on Carla's last nerve after flinging a napkin dispenser across the diner and hitting her in the tooth, chipping it. And it's possible that Carla took out all her late night drunk customer anger on this one fool and got arrested. It could be true.

Fun New Busted Betty Series

Busted Betty  11x14 oil on canvas

  Meet Betty, she's been busted. Could be anything. She might have gotten into a domestic dispute over her cheating husband (trust me he looks much worse than her!). She might have gotten into a bar room brawl because someone underestimated her petite body mistaking it for weakness when really she is the youngest of 6 older brothers and knows how to kick someones ass, but good! (Or you can fill in your own story about Betty but make it a good one!)
  This painting is the first of the many I will include in my new painting series titled 'Busted Betty'.  It is available here in my etsy shop.
