I was always fascinated by Valentino. In fact, for some reason I painted his tombstone when I was in my 20’s. Dietrich and Valentino hold sway over my studio. Pictures found at a thrift store – somebody’s collection wound up there – most were gone but I got my favorites.
After a night of not sleeping and being unable to pick up a brush all day – I completed this picture of Valentino for my show Dark Glamour coming up at Glama-Rama Salon and Gallery Opening September 6, 7-10 pm 304 Valencia Street @ 14th San Francisco.
