Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean

Come Back to the Five & Dime, Jimmy Dean
6″ x 6″ oil on panel
BID NOW in the Daily Paintworks Auction
This painting was done as part of one of the Daily Paintworks challenges, called the “Limited Movie Star” challenge. The challenge was to only use five values, and only use blue, purple and white to paint the picture.
When I was a teenager, I LOVED James Dean. I had a photo book of his biography and would draw him over and over 🙂 So when I saw the challenge I knew exactly who I would paint.
It was a fun little challenge. Who knows, maybe I should paint more “blue” movie stars…what do you think?

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
