I am a huge fan of both Lana Del Rey and Lily Allen’s music.  So when I decided I wanted to get back into portrait work, I knew just who I wanted to paint first.  I chose the backgrounds that I felt matched their style, and integrated it into some of the features of the portraits.  I designed them to be able to show together as sister paintings, but I plan to make several more in the series.  Top of my list are more of my favorite female musicians: Janelle Monae, Grimes, Melanie Martinez, & Santigold.
