Jazz Odalisque

“I think everything is terrible. I’ve been everywhere and seen everything and done everything. I’ve had a very bad time Nicky. I’m pretty cynical about everything … And I asked the nurse if it was a boy or a girl. And she said it was a girl. And I wept. I’m glad it’s a girl. And I hope she will be a fool. That is the best thing a girl in this world can be.  A beautiful little fool. All the bright precious things fade so fast and they don’t come back”

-Quote arrangement of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s line in the Baz Luhrmann film The Great Gatsby.


In loving memory of all the times I walked down the Seine around the Île de la Cité and Île Saint-Louis eating Berthillon ice-cream. Also for the times I walked after classes through Saint Germain des Pres looking up at the rooftops listening to the jazz soundtrack of Yves Saint Laurent.

*Painting inspired by paintings of Helena Lam who was obviously inspired by Gustav Klimt.

What Katie Davis says about this:

The detail in this is so incredible!!! I love the color scheme and I really want to have her room with such an amazing view!! I also really like how you painted all the little lights on the Eiffel Tower and how the sky has subtle gradients of blues. Very beautiful!!
