I often like to handpaint these old photos, something I taught myself to do sometime after I got a computer 2 years ago. I used to hand paint them on paper before digital. When I saw this picture Pop posted a little while ago I could not help myself. Ususally, I like to work with the original or a better and larger scan, but I did what I could.

When I first wanted to paint photos some friends laughed, I guess since I had no training they thought I could not accomplish such a feat, soon I bought some air-brush watercolors and there I went. Before there were a lot of posters of movie stars, I decided to blow them up from originals I got in New York for the purpose of painting photos of Movie Stars. There were some people who laughed at me, but I had the last laugh, all the way to the bank. There was basically no other place to get a handpainted photo of Marilyn Monroe, and I opened a lot of champagne bottles those years !!~
