Piece description from the artist
Billie Holiday is one of my favorite jazz vocalists, and I hope I have done justice to the genius she brought to the world of jazz with this oil painting. This is the most iconic image of Billie, originally taken by William Gottlieb in 1947. It is always fun converting a black & white photo to a full color oil painting. Own this original oil painting today and bring the legacy of Billie Holiday into your life.
Christopher Clark specializes in oil paintings of many subjects: romance, dancing, music, Italy, animals, and cityscapes. His impressionist style is compelled by bold brushwork, brilliant colors, and a luminous sense of light.
Christopher Clark has studied art his entire life, ever since he was a boy watching Bob Ross painting shows on TV (that wacky guy with the afro painting "happy little trees"). His art studies and travels have taken him all over the world in pursuit of culture, art knowledge, and painting subjects.
Christopher's favorite subject to paint is light itself, meaning anything becomes a beautiful subject if the light is stunning. Christopher's paintings are collected all over the world, and he is available for commissions of all kinds.
