MARILYN + THE DEL - pastel by Susan Roden

MARILYN + THE DEL
sold - private collector

Iconic . . .  no other words for the little lady.

Time has rolled on yet she is still as popular as ever. 
One of my dearest friends loves Marilyn
and so I was commissioned to create a likeness. 

It has been over 50 years since the filming
of "Some Like It Hot" with Marilyn and Tony Curtis. 
The film was shot in Coronado which is a peninsula of San Diego
and considered one of the finest films ever produced.

And thank you so much Alex!
