My Beau

My latest and most classic crush is Dean Martin. I will forever fall over Cary Grant and Steve McQueen but Dean Martin? Really? I don't know what it is but I pick the 'bad boys.' The ones that are exactly opposite of what I stand for. Dean Martin, for example, beat his wife and was an extreme womanizer. We can't have that! But, when he sings I melt. There is just something about crooner's. Maybe it's the orchestra, I haven't decided.Anyway, the reason for bringing this up is, of course, inspiration:
The gold one is the final composition. I wanted it to be just a head but I decided the shoulders were needed. I like the way the gold reflects the light and forces the viewer to move around the piece but it's very difficult to photograph. If only I could capture the way I feel when I hear his voice...
