“Oh, to learn again what I’ve forgotten ‘bout this woman of mystery;I’d seen her then, yes, way back when, guessed she was an image from our history.He tried to show me, Dad tried to tell me ‘bout how to sort out roots of one’s family tree.But me, I didn’t want to hear then, youth too dear then, to learn ‘bout ancestry.'Mail Order Bride,' he said. Suitcase by her side, she stood waiting on the train track, too late to turn back.Where’d her man go? How’d her world go? Things I’ll ne’r know,If only I’d asked him, if only I’d listened - but time has moved on - as has the woman from the train” ~ Kim NovaK Original poem by Kim Novak, actress and artist. ©2014 Kim Novak.

  1. Truly a stunning portrait. Beautifully rendered, pastel over watercolor – I never would have dared that.

  2. Wonderful! I’d love to know her. Such honesty and warmth in her face. (Like you, Kim.) Very nice.

  3. Miss Novak

    Really surprised and gladly surprised. I think your skill, your
    capacity as an artist has helped you a lot in hard times.

  4. This is excellent! She has a turn of the century quality.

    I am excited to discover your facebook page. I have been a fan of yours ever since the late 50’s and have done paintings of you and collages. I also have volumes of magazine articles and photos of you throughout your carrer that you are welcome to because of the various fires.

    I will collect some paintings to post.
