“True Integrity~The Contemporary Mona Lisa”
35 x 35 inch Framed original oil on canvas by Pomm
The portrait of Lisa Gherardini, Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” is widely considered the most famous painting in the world. In a nod to the Renaissance, I am bringing back the art of the portrait in a beautiful and modern way and creating a contemporary “Mona Lisa.”
My new collection of paintings focuses primarily on the beauty that women create daily. I am inspired by the emotions in the art of the renaissance painters and the beauty in women. The faces angelic, yet passionate. A story to say just by the tilt of a head.
I created my painting “True Integrity” to change the world and replace Da Vinci’s iconic painting. We need a new “Mona Lisa!” I want your opinion: is this too controversial or are you in agreement?

"Through the Red Door"
This is the last call for submissions to the “Chrissy’s Place” Story Contest. I want to personally thank those of you that have submitted stories and much more so far. It makes me so happy that my art inspires you to create such beautiful and touching stories. If you are thinking of submitting a story but haven’t done it yet, please do! I love reading all of them and they are all unique and clever in their own way. It will be very hard to choose a winner but someone is going to win- why not you?!
A FUN CONTEST!
One of the things that people love about my art is that it reminds them of some place they have been to or some pleasurable moment in their lives. And, they love the stories that go with my paintings.
When I was learning to paint, I was taught to create some indication of “life” in my art. In my non-figurative paintings, something is left on the ground such as a key, a note, or flowers. Sometimes I include notes left behind on the door with small gifts, a bag of groceries or a bouquet of flowers left on a table. I always put someone in my paintings, but they are off stage and doing something else. Often I include “hidden images” such as Chrissy in the painting above. (Click on the image to see a larger view and to spot Chrissy.) The great thing about this is the viewer can make up his or her own story as to who they are and what they are doing.
This is where you come in: I want to know what you think is happening in my painting “Chrissy’s Place” shown above. I have decided to have a contest to see who can come up with the best story. Use your imagination and tell me in your words what you think best describes the story behind Chrissy’s Place. Is there a romance? A mystery? You decide!
My painting “Through the Red Door” is a companion piece to “Chrissy’s Place” and I wanted to share it with you to give you more inspiration as you are working on your stories. If you compare these two images, maybe you can imagine Chrissy walking down a side street in the village following the trail of flowers, or leaving the trail of flowers- you decide!
The winner with the best story will receive a very valuable Printer’s Proof of “Chrissy’s Place” and their story will be featured in my blog and posted on my website. I am so excited to read your stories!
Of course I do have my own story which I will share in a later blog post. In the meantime, let your imaginations run wild and send your stories to: email@example.com
