What is... March

A bit later than planned, but here at last is my calendar image for March.

It is a 2009 painting from my 12fp(s) Film-inspired Painting Series, portraying Grace Kelly & Jimmy Stewart in Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window [1954].

That series of paintings began during the summer of 2009 - just after I had graduated with a BA (Hons) Animation degree from Edinburgh College of Art - and portrays some of the films that I found influential during my student days. The series was originally going to consist of only 12 paintings, but by the end of the year, as a result of an exhibition at the Filmhouse cinema (Edinburgh) throughout December 2009 & January 2010, it had grown to over 20 paintings.
This was one of the later paintings, and as it missed out on a place in my previous wall calendar (exclusively of the film painting series), I've included it this time around.
