    Default 3/14/22 Painted Ladies

    At the beginning of my ride. I included my neighbor on the left because it has three colors. Mine is basically two, unless you count the whites probably being slightly different. I think the official definition is three or more colors, but I don’t know if every definition follows that format.

    “In American architecture, painted ladies are Victorian and Edwardian houses and buildings repainted, starting in the 1960s, in three or more colors that embellish or enhance their architectural details.”

    -Wikipedia

    Richardson Place NW

    Ha! Mine has three colors if you count where the removed ivy peeled the paint away!

    This Painted Lady has been on the Greater Brookland Garden Club's House and Garden Tour. The bright colors were chosen with the help of a local artist in homage of the owner's Southwestern heritage. The full house is my highlighted Strava photo.

    3/14/2022 Painted Ladies

    Well, here in the desert southwest we don't have a lot of "painted lady" type homes you might be used to. But we have a lot of ladies painted on walls and walls are part of architecture.

    So once I decided I was going that route, I had the terrible job of choosing. But I decided to go with Milicent Patrick because she is painted on this wall and she herself painted other ladies (and creatures) in Hollywood. She was born in El Paso and grew up in California where her father worked on San Simeon (the Hearst Castle). She became an actress and make-up artist and was best known for creating the "Creature From the Black Lagoon" ... artist Tino Ortega used an iconic photo of Ms. Patrick for the mural.
