This week’s art is a quick mixed media piece I did Sunday afternoon/evening. It’s a portrait of Lana Clarkson (based on photos from the internet), an actress who starred in a few genre movies in the 1980s, and had a loyal cadre of fans. She was a fixture on the convention circuit, and by all accounts was a friendly, outgoing and upbeat person. Sadly, she is most famous for being murdered by a former record producer, who was sentenced to life in prison for shooting her in the head. That happened back in 2003.
The news broke Sunday morning that her murderer had died in a hospital a month after contracting COVID in prison. Rather than mention him here by name, I chose to celebrate the life of his victim.
This is mixed media on watercolor paper, about six inches high.
