Gene by the Pool91.5 H x 102 W x 3.8
The inspiration for this painting is a photo of a very young Gene Tierney posing by a pool. Her beauty, persona and tragic life evoke a sense of dramatic contrast expressed in my painting through light and dark, warmth and coolness. The winding path denotes both grace and the turbulent nature of her life. In many of her photos, Gene conveys both beauty and mystery that evokes curiosity.
