Sometimes ideas for painting come from the strangest places. In the case of ‘The Addict’, I was watching a horror movie called ‘Xmore.’ In the scene, Kara, played by British actress Sophie Harkness, is waiting to get the money for her next high. She is lit by a TV. I took liberties with the colors. I know this would be a beautiful painting if not for her nose, it’s a little off, but imperfection adds a certain element to the piece.
