Several years ago I purchased my first Fifi Flowers piece, and then I had to commission a couple of pieces. I believe I have 10 or 12 of her pieces. Women reading is on of my favorite subjects. Look at how fun this one is…Relaxing at her favorite cafe in Paris, or anywhere in the world. The pink collar with the black brings the eye back up to the face, he eyes cast down. Is she taking a nap or still reading? The big bow and hat are another device for the eye to go back to the face. A small glamorous face with huge lashes, and a pouty mouth. I am not sure she is someone that I would approach if I saw her in a cafe. Would you approach her?

When I was younger, my dearest friends jokingly called me “Contessa Grigia”. They would yell “Contessa” from the balcony as I walked to their apartment. They also called me “Ninja Turtle”, since my backpack was full of books. Contessa Grigia is more attractive to me than Ninja Turtle, although Ninja Turtle is pretty funny!
My username became “Contessa Grigia” (Countess Gray), with a chuckle. Now, it is a matter of owning it. LOL!
