A ‘Boudoir’ was a woman’s private sitting room or salon in a furnished accomodation, usually between the dining room and the bedroom. Could also refer to a woman’s private bedroom. The term derives from the French verb ‘bouder’ – to sulk or pout – or adjective ‘boudeur’ – sulking -, so the room was originally a space for sulking in, or one to put away or withdraw to (Wikipedia). My ‘Boudoir Stories’ however is more a celebration of women’s elegance and grace, but in a subtle, mysterious way, still leaving a lot up to the viewers imagination. The series includes the paintings ‘the Bonnet’, ‘Boots’, ‘the Letter’ and ‘Mannequin’ and is still in progress with more works to come..
