The title is of course drawn from the song, “Now I’m a believer”, keeping with the UFO museum’s theme of “The Truth is Here”. She’s a sort of modern day Madonna/angel, with UFO halo, standing alongside the modern equivalent of Michelangelo Buonarroti’s “The Creation of Adam”.

The most fun part of the painting to work on? The dots and the transparent fabric over the skirt of the dress. The most tedious part? The starry sky.

Thanks to Phoeebstock at Deviantart for the stock image for the model.

Background ref my own stock. At the Roswell UFO museum.

  1. This is excellent! I love all of the elements in it.

    I loved the Monkees as a girl… my favorite was Peter Tork, but that probably had to do with the fact that I went through a Peter Tork phase in my looks…

    I must confess, when in college, I was lured to a reunion tour.

  2. “Damn you help me waste a lot of time.”

    It’s my job.

    I had forgotten about Head. We have a local station that still plays Monkee reruns. They’re entertaining every once in awhile.
