'Marilyn on my mind'

A SERIES INSPIRED BY MARILYN

A new series of five portraits inspired by Marilyn Monroe. A while ago I was browsing through images in search for some beautiful smiling women for a lesson I am going to film.

A LOOK IN MY ART JOURNAL AND A NEW PORTRAIT DRAWING

A flip through the pages of my art journal. I think I started this art journal about three years ago. To be honest I really do not work in it much and I actually should be sketching more.

EXPLORING THE ABSTRACT

Old love never dies. Oh, that summer break! It stirrs up mixed feelings in my heart.

Still and Peaceful. There are times when it takes time for a painting to develope. But working on this piece gave me peace and it calmed me. So that´s where she has gotten her title.
