THE LEADSLINGER – AUDREY HEPBURN

Published October 9, 2010

WORDSLINGER’S NOTE: Frequent visitors here know that in addition to being a writer, I am also an artist – one who specializes in portraiture.  My paintings can be found under the heading The Paintslinger, and my drawings under (what else?) The LeadslingerHere’s another …

Greetings web surfers.  Got another portrait completed and already sold.  This one of the achingly lovely Miss Audrey Hepburn.

For some reason, the photo of Audrey that I used for this pencil drawing made me think – oddly enough – of a line from the Woody Allen movie Manhattan.  Woody’s character is riding through the titular town with his girlfriend Tracy (emphasis on girl), played by Mariel Hemingway.  He tells her: You’re God’s answer to Job. You would have ended all argument between them.  God would have said “Yeah, I do a lot of terrible things but … I can also make one of these.”  And Job would’ve said “OK, you win.”

Yes – God can make one of these.  Here she is.
