Marilyn Monroe has been a favorite of mine since the 1950's when I was in the service. The troops in WWII had Betty Grable, we had Marilyn. This particular rendition is from a portfolio of her early photos, before she became Marilyn.
My wife and I just saw the new film, My Week With Marilyn, which we both enjoyed very much. Michelle Williams does an wonderful portrayal and becomes Marilyn on the screen. It inspired me to do this painting which I have enterd into the January Bold Brush Art Contest. If you would like to vote for her go here and click on like:
