This is an original 16″x16″ mixed media painting on wood of Greta Garbo in the classic silent movie ‘Torrent’. I love painting from black and whites stills! The sky is the limit (colour wise).
This painting is of the wonderful Greta Garbo in the silent film ‘Torrent’ from 1926. Don’t you just love the black and white striped fur coat? So art deco! It is kind of a sad tale, giving Garbo lots of reason to lift those heavy lidded eyes to the heavens. This still is of the final shot in the film.
This painting is available on ebay
Chris took this photo of Sydney and Imogen with this iphone. Aren’t they sweet!?
Even climbing the ladder gave Circus Girl butterflies.
I took this image with Chris’ iphone. I have always wanted to paint stills off of the TV but until now have never been happy with the results. This was such a great still, such a powerful image. I just had to paint it.
I will admit, I had no idea who this woman was or what movie the still was from while I was painting. Perhaps this is a good thing. I think if I had know, I would have used a darker palette. I was able to paint without any prejudice.
Comments are always appreciated.
A limited edition art reproduction is available of this painting.
You have to admit, you don’t get much paler than this!
Boy, I know I am in for it when she wakes up like this! Those lips just don’t quit!
