I WANTED TO SHOW MORE JONI MITCHELL THAN JUST THE SMALL STUDY. THIS IS ALSO BASED ON A VIDEO STILL FROM THE JOHNNY CASH SHOW WHERE SHE IS PERFORMING 'GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY'. I THINK SHE LOOKS REALLY FOCUSED AND INTENSE.

Lemay’s work combines the imagery of fashion magazines with the techniques of the masters to create a style he calls Pop Realism, reinvigorating figure painting with an exploration of modern fashion and celebrity culture. Uniquely, the artist divides the canvas into a grid, painting square by square, row by row to create a subtly digitized effect which is completely hand-painted. All works are oil on canvas.
