the virginal bernice

i have been posting paintings made from snapshots from my friend "annie"'s family album in the last few days. And, i have mentioned a couple of times now, "annie's" mother-in-law, Bernice, as she is the purest person i know ---- wellll....
here is a shocking painting - it is Bernice!
this was painted from a snapshot of bernice when she was showing some skin at a tender age - possibly 16. isn't she lovely?

see how dreamy she looks - she was probably dreaming of her future husband and all the lovely children they would have together and then dreaming of her lovely future daughter-in-law "annie" and the pure and sweet grandkids that were sure to come into being. (not forgetting the other grandkids...that i don't know as well....)

OR, possibly she was dreaming of becoming a nun, only wondering how she could get a great an awesome tan before signing up to a lifetime of black sack wearing.

actually, i don't even think she is Catholic... besides she never opted for the nunnery, did she. good call bernice. i love this painting, i hope you don't mind me sharing it with the world.
