This one is dedicated to
I always wanted to do some portraits of the golden age movie-icons! And when Christine started doing hers, I got just the inspiration I needed to kick off. Took me awhile to get going, but here's one of my fav's, Sophia Loren. I plan to do a few others over time too. Richard Burton, Gregory Peck, Jean Simmons, Gary Cooper, Ava Gardner, Ingrid Bergman etc.etc...
There are really so many legends to choose among!
But as a hardcore movie fan, I really enjoyed this one.
Hope you like it, Christine!
