Copy of Rolf's Gal

"Copy of Rolf's Gal"
12" x 9"
Oil on canvas panel
"This looks like something you'd paint," read the e-mail.  I looked at the colors and patterns and decided to rise to his challenge.  I painted Rolf Armstrong's portrait of Martha Mansfield from the 1930's.  

I am not a portrait artist!  But this didn't feel like a portrait because of all the fun stuff around her face.  I enjoyed making marks of all kinds intermittently with her porcelain features.  It's for sale, but you must know that she is Rolf's Gal, not mine.

Thank you for checking in to see my art today.
