A very good friend of mine is in charge of the Army's website for the Centennial of World War I. He asked if I would be interested in painting a series to help commemorate the "War to end all wars." I was thrilled. There are thousands of black and white photos and I came across one of Mata Hari.
It is 100 years since the exotic dancer and legendary ‘femme fatale’ Mata Hari was executed by a French firing squad for passing secrets to the Germans during World War One. She was described at the time as the ‘greatest woman spy of the century’.
I thought it would be fun to bring the black & white photo to life with colors of my own imagination. I have never tried this before and it was a lot of fun. Hope you enjoy it!
