Celebrities & Musicians

Being sold by the artist, Dave Woodman, this is the original painted creation of Phyllis Diller's favorite portrait of herself.  After purchasing the rights to this caricature image, Phyllis constantly used it for promotion.

In January, Phyllis decided it was her wish, as well as mine, that this original artwork be purchased by a loving fan.  Perhaps her feelings about the likeness were best displayed when she chose it to be the cover of her autobiography.  Incidentally, when she hired me to transform the image to computer generated art, a book company reneged on it's pledge to pay for the upgrade.  She quickly and willingly paid me for the work, out of her own pocket.  

Included will be the preliminary painting, as shown.  Her desire to change the image of holding an empty cigarette holder came about at the time I created this portrait.  Examination of the piece reveals where this change was made. 

I was very fortunate to have spent a lot of quality time with my first choice for celebrity company.  They were all magical times for me.  She would invite me to dinner, cook for me, serve me at the table while telling jokes the whole time.  She was sincerely funny as well as extremely kind and loving.  No other celebrity has come close to being what she was to me.

There are 2 similar, signed paintings in this lot.  A preliminary portrait with the cigarette holder and the final, with empty hands.  The final portrait is professionally framed behind Image Perfect E-Z AR Glass.  Both were painted on illustration board with acrylics and are approximately 7 7/8 X 7 1/2.  Near mint condition, the top bidder wins both original paintings.

Please give it a good home and thank you for bidding.
