The Hitchhiker

A few years ago, I was on a Madonna kick and painted this shot of her from Vanity Fair, where she was doing a Marilyn inspired layout. Not a typical Madonna pose, which is why I liked it. Why paint what has already been captured over and over again? When I was recently asked to exhibit my Madonna work in a Hollywood Gallery, I decided to do a second one for the show, since the other one that they requested sold many years ago:

Here is the sketch for my upcoming creation:

As before, I decided to do a lesser known pose of Madonna, choosing one from her book, “Sex.” I will use my favorite shade of blue, and I also want to do a little Tamara Lempicka styling to the background. To see more of my art, visit my regular website.
