Marilyn Monroe by AnguianoArt Marilyn Monroe by AnguianoArt
It's a bad picture but I just finished my marilyn monroe painting! :)

20in x 30in oil, acrylic, and melted crayons :D

the canvas was textured with tissue paper before adding the crayons or painting.

I really love how you painted Marilyn Monroe herself. She looks very sensitive and almost insecure, reflecting her troubled life and mental health. In a way I don't know if you needed the melted crayons? Possibly adds an unnecessary element to your piece, distracting from the beautiful portrait? But then again it visualizes her inner anguish and turmoil and reflects the complexities in her life? What do you think?

First of all, thank you so much for your beautiful words :) I love your comment so much!! I LOVE knowing what goes in other people's minds about my work, I'll treasure your words :) I think the crayons also add some feeling of how her life was colorful and amazing on the outside but REALLY complicated to handle and easy to melt away with heat, :)

Oh don't worry my 'beautiful words' are only granted to 'beautiful paintings'! Ah I see! Yeah I suppose so, all razzamatazz and red carpets on the surface but vulnerability, normality and insecurity on the inside. Her life was almost paradoxical...
Thankyou for making me think!

:) I ADORE YOUR WORK! it's amazing you like my stuff :D that is awesome! And I glue them first with a glue gun, then I draw the area where the image will be, nothing detailed! then tape the area, and melt the crayons with a blow dryer, make sure you have high and low settings, alternate between the two heat settings for best results, the crayon wax WILL go inside the tape but not as much, this you can just paint over later :)
