T is for The Painter: Joan’s Painting

Did you know that Joan could actually paint? I betcha didn’t (just like the fact that she could write poems). Haha.

Joan, along with other Hollywood stars, willingly painted and participated in a cause to benefit the Urban League. All of the pictures documenting Joan’s struggle with the paintbrush (hehe) were captured by then-photographer for LOOK magazine, director Stanley Kubrick.

Here’s the finished output:

Marvelous, isn’t it? It didn’t even cross my mind that Joan could paint! Haha. I’m truly amazed… I couldn’t even do a decent shadowing or blending of colors.

Any thoughts?
