I'm slowly at the point where I'm looking for artwork and photography to decorate my blank walls in my house. I wanted to start off with the wet bar area. I've always loved the original painting for The Great Gatsby cover, "Celestial Eyes" by Francis Cugat. It had a haunting quality to it, the eyes in the painting always looked so sad. I thought the original artwork would be cool to have up, but decided to recreate it with my own interpretation in order to have a more personal touch to it. I want all the art and photography in my house to have a personal touch or connection. Below is my own take of Cugat's painting.
I wanted the eyes to have a more confident look and the female figures in the pupils were updated. I added my beloved San Diego skyline at the bottom too. Save, Print, Frame.
Wet Bar Art...done.
