Conartist Carol

Meet Carol, she's been busted. 

Carol looks like she doesn't take any one's crap and it finally caught up with her.
She might have some anger issues, look at that face. Maybe Carol caught her man with another woman... Maybe she was using a stolen credit card all over town...
Maybe her hairdresser didn't make her bouffant do big enough.
Many scenarios are possible with Con artist Carol.

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.
