Amy Crehore is a remarkable artist working in Los Angeles. Her work has been exhibited in various galleries, and reporduced in various magazines. For me, she paints in a style which brings the singular work of Mark Ryden to mind. (Check out her art and website here
.) This past week, Crehore blogged
about Louise Brooks. . . . "Why is Louise Brooks so much more amazing than ANY woman in cinema today?" I emailed the artist, and asked if she had ever painted Brooks' portrait. She hadn't, but thinks "she is a wonderful subject."
