“Luck? I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: hard work — and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t.”
– Lucille Ball

I stopped while this resembled a block print, before I gave it too much form and detail. It still may get something, but I don’t know what.
Would you like a sneak peek at my 2′ x 4′ painting? Here is one small square…
This was taken in my studio with no natural light, so it’s not a very good likeness, but it does give you a small glimpse of a small corner of the bigger painting. I am having so much fun!
About Lucille Ball
Lucille Ball, the beloved redheaded comedian, was born in 1911 in New York. She enrolled in drama school — where she was told she had no acting talent, so she became a model. That career led to her discovery by Hollywood. Ball and her bandleader husband, Desi Arnaz, pitched a sitcom to CBS, which refused it, but they went on the road with it as a vaudeville act. The act — about a ditzy housewife and her bandleader husband — was a success, as was the ensuing TV show, I Love Lucy. The show made TV history when Lucy’s sitcom character was pregnant on the air. She died in 1989.
