52 Starlet Art Challenge - Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe is the subject of Week 3 of the 52 Starlet Challenge.

There's nothing new I can say about Marilyn Monroe. She stands alone among her peers and I think she always will.  In researching my contribution I stumbled upon this amazing photo:

I can't think of two more unlikely dance partners than Marilyn and Truman Capote!  He looks completely lost - not sure where to put his hands - and I have never pictured him dancing.


  1. That is so cool, Jeanie. I wish I had heard of this challenge before! I love the butterflies.

  2. FANTASTIC!!!! Love the butterfly wings. So Beautiful and fitting for Marilyn. I am so glad you joined The 52 Starlet Art Challenge.
    The photo is Funny. Never imagined those to dancing. GREAT research.

  3. Holy cow, this is really interesting. How on earth did you do that?? Marilyn really was like a butterfly, wasn't she?
