THE VISITOR



In the house we're renting, there is a big Plasma Screen TV Mounting Rack attached to the wall. My wife and I don't have one of those fancy contraptions, we still have an old school electron gun. We decided to commission an artist to do a big painting to cover up the rack since we can't remove it. I was the only one we could afford so, we commissioned me. There was a brief moment where we thought about going another direction and finding another artist better suited for the assignment, but we decided to buck the current tradition and stick with me.

This is a rather bad photograph of the painting, but it's the best I could do in-between fits of rain. Hope to get a better pic soon.

3'x2' Acrylic on Canvas. Biggest painting I have ever done.

OMG...I don't know how you do it man, but that painting rocks! You should definitely sell 11" x 17" litho prints of this.

Great image, also so wicked heart burn. I respect you for sticking with you for the job, not an easy thing to do. Took my wife 4 years to convince me to put up some of my old work in our house.
