This is only the 2nd time I've been hired to do a painting at a wedding. This was about 3 hours' work. Oil on canvas, 16"x20". I took it home to finish it by adding faces (too far away to see and they were only standing there for 15 minutes! Cut me some slack).
This is a blog about myself, my art and my life. It may also include comments about comics, music, tv, movies, or whatever nonsense may come to mind. I must note that I have original art and prints available for sale, and I am also available for hire for commission work. Portraits can be a great gift, be it family, friends, or of someone's favorite singer or actor.

Something Sinister This Way Comes
I started on a new drawing of my favorite group o' villains: the Sinister Six!
White (paint) Wedding
I just made a painting live at a wedding. This is only the 2nd time I've done it. It's tough because although I get there early to paint the background and surroundings, I don't know where exactly the bride and groom will be until they're both at the altar reciting vows. That might take 15 minutes at the most! They're only up there for a few minutes so I have to rush! I take a couple photos to look at, but outdoor weddings are rough because of various lighting. This one was no different, as the sun was lighting them up from BEHIND them, so my camera basically picked up silhouettes.
Anyway, this is what I ended up with. I brought it home to finish it. I spent a total of 3 1/2 hours on it, with 15 of those minutes on the figures. 16"x20" oil painting.
