A friend I admire greatly saw the second portrait I was working on. He demonstrated great faith in my work and said he would love a Carrie Fisher portrait done in her iconic Princess Leia costume. While doing research, I fell in love with the dramatic red light of this image. She’s holding a weapon and making her escape will the alarms and signal lights are blaring. She says cool under the pressure.
After Carrie’s death, I knew I had to do the portrait to honor her and the friend who had suggested it.
