Candy Barr-1950's burleque dancer.
While riding the train thru Brooklyn I came across some graffiti that had been destroyed with acidic cleaner. The job unfinished left the colors running like candied colored paints. It was the prettiest thing I'd seen that day, and it inspired my painting of Miss Candy Barr.
Miss Barr was known in Texas/Las Vegas at your high end burlesque shows, but she came "famous" for her business with Jack Ruby, the shooting of her estranged husband, and prison time for drug possession.
