Golden Icon - Marilyn Monroe

7x5 oil on panel
$100 + $11 s/h
- sold

I think I will just use this text from the MOMA on this painting:
Redolent of 1950s glamour, the face in Gold Marilyn Monroe is much like the star herself—high gloss, yet transient; bold, yet vulnerable; compelling, yet elusive. Surrounded by a void, it is like the fadeout at the end of a movie.
NOTE: I looked at this painting again this morning (Nov. 1) and did not like it... the floor was wrong among other things. So I reworked it a bit and I am much more pleased with it. That is one problem with painting and posting. No time to live with the work and be certain I nailed it.
