Lucille Ball – Watercolor painting

Aug 10 Lucille Ball – Watercolor painting

The world honored Lucille Ball, the face of I Love Lucy, on her 100th birthday on August 6.  60 years since “I Love Lucy” first aired, her legacy remains remarkable. I think she has to be one of the most long lived Hollywood TV stars.

Honestly, I haven’t watched a single full episode of the show. Having watched only bits and pieces of the show, I know she was very good looking and funny. They say her big-eyed, full-lipped look didn’t start as comic fodder. She was a model, a movie starlet in the early 1930s and then an actress with minor roles in a handful of good films and bigger roles in many B rated movies.

Then came television, which made Lucille Ball. In return, she and Arnaz, her husband, partner and co-star, made TV comedy what it is to this day.

Because the show was black and white, it is not easy to remember she had red hair. I was trying to capture her iconic beauty with bright red lips, striking red hair, and huge blue eyes framed by long lashes and well-crafted brows. Prints are available for sale on my Etsy shop.
