Film Series: "My Own Private Idaho"

i watched Gus Van Sant's My Own Private Idaho obsessively for awhile a couple of years ago.  i'm a sucker for '90s nostalgia.  i'd watch the movie for a couple of times, then freeze frame certain clips i was drawn to and paint from there.  now i hate sounding all art-class-critique but there's something interesting about painting from a frozen screen image.  like stopping time or something like that.  and that's about as deep i can get without nauseating myself.

this painting i did from the campfire scene where River Phoenix's character confesses his love to Keanu Reeves's character.  who hasn't ever felt unrequited love before?
