CANDLE IN THE WIND
I really had a great time in visioning this painting, It is somewhat of an ode to Marilyn Monroe. The pop composition creates a Roy Lichtenstein meets Tom Wesselman kind of feel. In the border i incorporated hand cut letters that read the quote form Elton John’s famous Ballad…”Candle in The Wind.”
left to right it reads, ” and it seems to me your lived your life like a candle in the wind”.
If you look closely you can see the word LUST spelled out started in the lower left ending near the lips. Marilyn Monroe was certainly all about lust!
