Seattle independent filmmaker Aaron Bourget has edited a video from a recent visit to the painting studio.
It’s difficult to be in front of a camera (especially when 6 months pregnant!) and Aaron really helped make me feel more comfortable. I hope you enjoy this glimpse into what’s hanging in the studio, and what I’m working on!
Thank you Aaron!
I’ve been commissioned to do a portrait of The Bride of Frankenstein from the 1935 film starring Elsa Lanchester. The commission was influenced by a current body of work that I call Mismatched Portraits, and my fabulous patron, Jennifer, who is also an artist, invited me to compose it any way I liked. This is an image showing the very first stages of the underpainting.
I’ve also included some of the first paintings completed in this series below.
