As a young actress, not the matriarch of TV's "The Big Valley."

A couple of years ago I came across the website Movie Maidens that contains hundreds of photos of actresses from the earliets days of movies up to the recent past. There have been some stunningly beautiful women in the movies over the years.

For no reasons I am aware of, I have found myself drawing/painting a few of them:
• Hedy Lamar
Veronica Lake
• Clara Bow
Marion Davies
• Myrna Loy
Louise Brooks
