Aphrodite: The Goddess Marilyn Portrait
"Aphrodite" Charcoal and pastel on mylar 20 x 16".
New from the Black Butterfly series, a tribute to Marilyn Monroe from a photograph taken by Bert Stern at the last sitting. I always said I wouldn't draw Marilyn again, lahttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifst time I was 15, but my friend Val inspired me with her recent portrait of the Goddess and I couldn't resist.
A video inspired by Marilyn's last sitting, the actress's likeness to Monroe is astounding!
