Description

This acrylic painting was inspired by the likeness of 1920s film star Alla Nazimova. She was an American silent film actress from the Ukraine. I find her inspiring because she was a powerhouse for the time, not only an actress, but also a screenwriter and film producer. She had to keep a lot of secrets in her private life. She had a secret marriage and there were several rumors circulating about her affairs with women. This painting depicts her personal questioning and fear of the truth getting out. Her eyes express fragility through the watery blues of her irises and the wavy purple shadows surrounding her eyes.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy
    on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come
    here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Exceptional work!
