Marilyn Mon-Fish-Roe

Oil on Canvas – 16″ x 20″

Last night I went out to see “Cabin in the Woods” and it was a good time (good acting, story, effects, and, of course, comedic moments that were actually funny).  I’d highly recommend it.

This has nothing to do with Miss MonFishRoe.  She’s alright.  Her dress was not easy to create and my inner critic is fantasizing about eating this painting for dinner.  I meant to place her shoulders lower and closer to her hips, but, as I started working on her head, her shoulders seemed to feel more at home from a higher point (closer to her head).  This change had the negative effect of making her legs appear too small.  I have this tendency to make legs disproportionately small to begin with.  Maybe it’s because I’m only five-foot-tall myself, or, the more likely reason is that my figure drawing skills have gotten rusty.
