Thank you Hermes .. no, the name came from looking at the painting and seeing the idea of a dressed up doll in a run down place. Then the song Kansas City went through my head and an altered line from the song became the painting's name

Thanks Zen

She's a beauty no matter what she's doing on that street corner! :oops: It's an interesting contrast with the flower out front and architectural elements behind her.

Kansas City here I come!
That insolent smokey stare, that disheveled riot of blonde hair, that voluptuous vase, that, that, that, smoldering je ne sais quoi...

Thank you Ayin. I stand corrected as I only ever seen or heard of them in the movies. 🤣

Thank you Donna .. I got the idea when I saw a flower on a stand in a window of an apartment window so you had a city view and a still life. Remember as an artist , you beg, borrow, steal, and steal more than beg or borrow.

Thank you Lamar .. you must be commended on giving me a good dose of laughter. Much needed these days.

Actually Hermes, your take on it was a good one. Every bit as clever in it's own right.
