This is a commissioned piece from a client who first contacted me when he saw this piece up for auction. We share similiar tastes in music - the piece he wanted me to use is by a favourite artist, Nick Cave.
I am really enjoying the freedom that such a large canvas affords me. (24" x 36") I've been layering thin thin washes of paint and building an incredible amount of depth. Also, painting a portrait, a male portrait at that, is a really fun change of pace.
