Stars and Stripes Forever

Discovering David

Acrylic on canvas 2011
40"x30" available for purchase

I was inspired to do this concept for a show called "Urban Grit" at a local gallery. Since no other model was available I chose myself. By doing black and white in foreground and color through the window, I wanted to impart the sense of separation we often feel from others.

Daughter of Ingrid Bergman another stunning actress, they look very much like mother and daughter. I couldn't resist trying to do her beauty justice. In this painting, I chose to do everything in shades of blue (after the movie that made her famous, "Blue Velvet") except for her lovely hazel eyes.

Grace

Color pencil and guache on board
30"x20" available for purchase

I used color pencil because it's waxy base allows it to perfectly mimic the softness and depth of human skin. It also allows for the luminosity that would compliment the exquisite beauty of Grace Kelly.

Marilyn

Graphite pencil/chalk/acrylic on board
20"x30" NFS

With this piece I wanted to take my favorite image of the legendary screen goddess and keep the colors muted and almost to the point of being faded. With that in mind I wanted to impart the sense of her diaphanous existence. Delicate and fleeting.
