Description

This acrylic painting was inspired by the likeness of 1920s film star Theda Bara. She was one of the most popular silent film actresses and one of the first sex symbols. I find her inspiring because of her dramatic face and her efforts to change her Vamp image. She let her contract with the film studio end rather than take the same Vamp roles again and again. This painting depicts her with a sweetness and soft flowing brushstrokes. Her eyes are wide and her usual dark gothic make-up is lightened with less of a contrast to her skin.
