David Bowie...

I was in a retro nostalgia Bowie mood and invited the incredible @vnixie to sit for me today, via palette knife,  to capture that feeling. She is perfection, as was he. 

I was lucky to meet Bowie once, a long time ago. You could feel his presence in the room. Such a genius creator and innovator. 

Life is sadder with this legend gone but of course he is just with Major Tom. Back shortly.

Your model resembles Miley Cyrus - both beautiful young ladies... as is your painting.

Thank you Jean...yes, I only noticed the resemblance after I painter her. Appreciate your kind words.
