New Artwork...


Been a long time since I posted anything of my own here....that it's following on the heels of a Frazetta post means either I have guts or I'm an idiot!

Title: "Burn - Clara Bow Opus 7"

I've been working on this steadily for nearly 2 months now and just finished it this past Sunday. Ths is actually the 3rd version of this pose I've tried within the last 8 or 9 years but the other 2 just never came out right to me. I knew i'd go for it again someday and I think I finally have this picture out of my system!

Colored pencil and neocolor II crayons (b/g only) on 22" x 28" museum board.

As for the nasty watermark, you can thank the dipshit who decided to repost entire years of my blog without giving me credit for it!

Awesome. I took one look at the little preview picture in the dashboard blog feeder, and before even reading the title of the painting, thought, "Oh, that's GOT to be Clara Bow!"

She looks stunning!

You're so talented.

I also love the green gloves...my absolute favorite song of 2007 was the National's 'Green Gloves', and was so in love with it, I bought a pair of long gloves, and meant to dye 'em green to do a photoshoot of myself wearing nothing but green gloves.

Ha. If i would have done so about a month ago, when my hair was extra short and reddish, like Ms. Bow's, what a wonderful coincidence it would be. ;)

...

I'm glad you still share your work, despite the risk of returning blog thieves.

She's lovely. I adore your creative vision of beautiful women.
