Today post is for yesterday painting Day 20 official  prompt is “California Dreaming” I live in California from last 15 years! Today I made a painting illustrating one of the most famous places in Los Angeles and an all time tourist attraction “Hollywood”!  I couldn’t miss to portray one beautiful movie star, iconic Marilyn Monroe! Her beauty has no time but I painted her in my style, watercolor and ink with a touch of Pop Art. I gave her, blue hair!

  1. Thankfully art has no time Carolina…she is just like it was yesterday. And as you said, would fit right in with blue or pink hair. Well done 😀
