Oil on canvas

“An oil painting inspired by a 1966 photograph that reveals the increasingly vulnerable state of the 1950s Hollywood star in her last years. Anyone who wishes to learn more about this much misunderstood actress should read ‘Jayne Mansfield’ by May Mann (1973); a close friend of the star who gets close to the heart of the woman. I include Jayne Mansfield in my cartoon tribute Hollywood To Heaven – as I believe she had a faith . In the biography she is pictured in tears in a church in Ireland, lighting candles and praying for help; months before her tragic death. She is free….Peace.” ~ Stephen B Whatley
