My Mom the Painting


You think you're fancy? Marla Bane's mom sat for a freaking portrait. In a red strappy ballgown, no less. In the 50's when this painting was commissioned, Lois Levine Bane Ross lived in Forest Hills, Queens with her husband who was in the shoe business. These days Lois lives in Florida. But the painting lives in Dallas with daughter Marla.
