After The Santa Ana's
This painting is about The Santa Ana winds blowing through Los Angeles. Raymond Chandler has a famous quote about these iconic winds that inspired her painting.
"“There was a desert wind blowing that night. It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands' necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge.”
This quote is written on all the theater marquees.
