Mary Pickford has always been someone who has fascinated me. The fact she is a fellow Canadian is a point of pride for me but I'm also interested in her life and her career as a movie icon. I created this piece using this gorgeous and romantic image of her. The flowers on the left started off completely purple but, to my initial horror, some browned. I panicked and immediately made plans to replace them but as I studied the piece I realized that they added something to it....a feeling that there are two sides to stardom and that it can be very lonely and fleeting. This is my entry for this week's Opus Gluei challenge.
