      The pretty beach-ready redhead is pictured here wearing a sea green bathing suit to match the hue of the soda bottle she is about to drink. This canvas was among the artist's last works. He was Lt. Commander in the U.S. Navy and was reported missing when the [ship] he was aboard was torpedoed on July 18, 1943.
