-- Christopher Burns, a dynamic rising star of the Art World and owner of "Classical Werx of Art," has announced the completion of a new oil painting, which he has titled, "Norma Jean." The portrait was suggested by a fan, and Burns finished the work after several weeks of research and an equal number of weeks creating the painting.
Burns, who has appeared in numerous art shows and won many awards for his paintings, believes that this latest work is among his finest. He notes, "I believe I created a unique oil painting that serves to mirror the uniqueness of the ethyreal performer who captivated the public, movie goers, sports figures, celebrities and, of course, high-ranking politicians. He adds, "I tried to capture her style by combining a bit of elegance and grace with her movie-star quality".
Burns also gives a big "thank you" to the famous Harold's saloon located in Cave Creek, Arizona, where he will be unveiling the Norma Jean portrait to the public on Friday, June 28 at 5:00 pm.
