"No Time to Rest" by Helenna Jouja
Inspired by the movie "No Time to Die," Daniel Craig‘s last film on James Bond Movie Series. Well, as we won’t see anymore David Craig in the next James Bond film, i decided to paint him to immortalize his character as Agent 007.
To invest or not to invest in painting that is the question.
Daniel Craig's trench coat was originally painted in green and upon public decision, it’s been changed to blue. Did I intend to paint it green just to create a public attention? Maybe yes, maybe not, you be the judge. The undying image of elegance attributed to the character of a British James Bond is such an image to be taken seriously and honoured. There is no decline of aging that seems to be the serious impediment to the completion of safe stunt movement for the role, or is it mainly an early retirement for the actor, who already made millions out of doing the role? Whatever it is, being in film itself is not a quarantee of immortality, as a film maybe not able to continue its existence in the following centuries, and as the growing number of replacement of actors for the leading role is emminent, therefore losing the fame of the current actor as the new younger actor always steals the role, and later as the old actor continuously ages he is soon to be fogotten. Not even mentioning the quality of the film he is on, but the increasing faster pace of technological innovation in the film industry and the photography, on the other hand, also tries to be immortal but every now and then proves to be not able to pass the test of time. Investing in painting in good quality is still the winning edge for investors, and therefore, it is best to invest in something like painting portraits of important characters nor people of the past or present, and of course, it is equally important to invest on the right contempory artist, someone, like me: eager to be a part of future of art business in the next centuries and therefore producing only quality paintings, etc.
I'm no longer the owner of this painting, but you can maybe purchase it for a good price from the new owner.
