Marilyn Monroe close-up by imaginee Marilyn Monroe close-up by imaginee
Here is one of my most recent drawings. Marilyn has been a favorite of mine for many years, this is I believe the 10th portrait I've done of her, I tried to give her lots of light and a soft dreamy look. Thank you for stopping in to have a look. ~Linda
PS:I framed this one and it's now hanging in my home where it will stay.

Smooth Bristol
