I was stoked to discover that my alleyway painting in Norfolk for the 6Squared Juried Exhibition won a $250 award. Considering all the great work from amazing painters, this was a huge honor.
Last night I finished up two paintings. One from the legendary band, Pat DiNizio of Smithereens. I had the opportunity two photograph and meet him in Richmond, VA in 2003. I had started a second painting of him after delivering the first, but the second was lost in a move. Finally, I got around to painting this.
The second painting I did last night was of my friend and neighbor, Ryan. This is the start of a new on going project of painting portraits of my friends, so stay tuned for new ones.
