Julie, Baby, You're my Flame

The song "Fever" achieved its definitive form and sophisticated sensuality when sung by Peggy Lee, after evolving from an original recorded by Little Willie John. The songwriters were Danny Tate, Guy Chadwick and Shelly Peiken. The title of this painting comes from the fourth verse, which starts with the wonderful lines:
Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said "Julie, Baby, You're My Flame"
The artist states that the images invoked by the lyrics, coupled with the unforgettable melody and the evocative rhythm, have never left her imagination. The light hearted references to Romeo and Juliet, with a spin on Shakespearean verbiage, creates a relief of sorts to the eroticism of the composition. Marsha's painting tries to evoke the same emotion, creating a sultry singer with only the intimacy of a piano accompanist to convey the complexed power of love and passion.
This is an image to be enjoyed by all of the viewers.
