Bardot in Spring – Oil – CANVAS BOX FRAME
This piece was created with much love for an exhibition at a local interior design store and the theme was Springtime.
My affinity with the 1950s, old Hollywood and anything vintage was poured into this work bringing together the gorgeous young Bridget Bardot and her pal Pablo Picasso.
I set them sitting outside having a casual chat and gave it a spring feel by working up her floral dress. I always research whatever I have in mind, and after reading a biography on Pablo Picasso was struck by the fact that he would never paint Bardot as she so desperately wanted. I think they endured a small love affair of some nature during those years.
May you love this work as I did in making it.
