Amanda Beard
44 x 52 inches Oil on Canvas

I created this portrait of Amanda Beard to show the contrast between her as a swimmer (on the right) and her posing for Playboy (on the left). This is the first canvas I have made that contains both forms of imagery. One can quickly see the differences between the two. On the left she appears less athletic and much more vulnerable, while on the right she is completely engaged in her sport and powerful.
