This is an original oil painting of Gene Kelly. He acted, he sang, he directed, he produced, he choreographed, but, boy did he dance! Singing in the rain with Gene, would have been a pretty amazing time in the American movie scenes of the 50s. Known for so many innovations, Gene was righteously credited with making the ballet style massively accepted to movie audiences.
And what a beautiful man! I had a hard time choosing which photo to look at to paint. Although, he has scars on his face, there is a sweetness in his smile, and a gentleness in his eyes. I guess, the fact that he was much more athletic than most dancers of his time, would have given him an even brighter spotlight today.
This painting has been produced using artist grade oil paint on gallery wrapped, linen canvas. A coat of professional grade art varnish has been applied to optimize the color pigment, accentuate brush strokes and ensure the painting will last a lifetime. The painting has been signed and is ready to hang. If you wish to reduce the cost and have it delivered in a roll, please request it in a private message.
