Mission Accomplished: Matt Zumberge's Portrait Est Fini

It's finally done! Matt Zumberge's face is forever emblazened on canvas to be remembered for generations and generations to come. Maybe one day people will study and contemplate the reason for his furrowed brow the way they question Mona Lisa's smile. I'll be able to test this theory come Friday when I show this piece along with some of my other work at a friend's Christmas party. I was hoping to get one more piece pumped out this week before the show on Friday, but that's crazier than Jack Nicholson in The Shining. I always forget how long these paintings take me.

I finally added the halo to my other painting in "The Beatniks, The Bastards, and The Saints" series while I was doing the halo on the portrait of Matt. 2 paintings down, and a slew more to go. I want to do 8-10 paintings for this series, but we'll see if my work ethic and schedule can match my ambition. I also finally signed all of my paintings. I have a really bad habit of forgetting to sign my work. I've used three different signatures so far. It's kind of fun switching it up. It's going to be a bitch for the art historians 300 years from now if my art lives on after I'm long gone.

  4. I really love your paintings! What medium are you using for them? Good luck with finishing them on time :)
