In Memoriam...Yvonne De Carlo

I was saddened to learn of the passing of actress Yvonne De Carlo. Though most people knew her as Lily Munster in the 1964-1966 horror-movie spoof "The Munsters" she had a long and prosperous film career in Hollywood making over 120 films and co-staring with some of Hollywood's most famous leading men including Burt Lancaster, Tony Curtis, Lloyd Bridges, Rock Hudson, Van Heflin and more. Plus, she was absolutely stunningly beautiful. I once painted a work based on her likeness which sold to a collector long ago. Oddly enough, I was just speaking about that work with some artist friends last night.

In Memoriam:
Yvonne De Carlo
Sept. 1, 1922 - Jan. 8, 2007
