From Garak Elim to a porn star - who comes next?

What does a Cardassian, a Klingon and actress Dana Dearmond have in common?  That may be the stuff of fantasy ... or it may be that one of those three is likely the subject of my next art original. I am nearing the end of the Armin Shimerman piece, and about halfway through the Bob Dylan piece, so it's time to start planning for the next in line ...

Elim Garak, played by actor Andrew J. Robinson, would certainly be a fun, challenging piece. I have always liked his Deep Space Nine character, as well as his role in the motion picture, "Shoot to Kill."

Actor J.G. Metzler, of "Martok" fame, would be equally fun. Easily my favorite Klingon character, his ruddy face and waves of hair would certainly pose an artistic challenge, but it would be fun to explore clever ways to render those details on canvas.

And actress Dana Dearmond, a hands-down favorite of mine, is also bubbling to the top of my list. Though her credits are long, I am particularly drawn to "Paint," most likely because due to the artist in me (that's my story and I'm sticking to it). Her portrayal of Ro Laren in The Next Generation parody was also fun .... 

So ... in summary ... a Klingon, a Cardassian or a porn star ... hmmmmm ...

And that also begs another question: What would be said if all three walked into a bar together? ;)
