Daler Rowney Acrylic on box canvas W:12" x H:16
My inspiration for this painting is Marilyn Monroe. This is the first time I have painted her. Although she was idolised by so many for her beauty, her life was full of sadness and torment. This is my vision of her. Tradegy behind the beauty

    Wonderful expressive painting! It’s full of emotion and combines beauty and turmoil so well. I did one like this of Frida Kahlo a few years ago and it reminds me of that although the paintings are nothing like each other.

  • Thank you Ruth for a great critique. It’s really appreciated
