Sean is fundraising for Diabetes Awareness. He is also on a program to lose 250 pounds and raise at least $50,000 for a Diabetes Foundation. I am painting his portrait. I started this painting in Chicago about 2 months ago, and brought it with me while I am in Canada visiting friends and family. I taped a bunch of plastic on the wall and made a little mini-studio. I hope this painting will do better than Kawasaki Krump but I haven't given up on that though! No way! I'd like to sell this painting and give half the money to Sean's Diabetes charity, and then Stagg and I go out and visit Sean in person! Well, we'll see.
Here are some of the paints and I'm using a yogurt lid for a palette.That's my favourite cup. It says, A deer hunter will do anything for a buck. I've hauled this cup with me all over the continent. It makes an awesome cup of tea, one bag and it's a huge serving and keeps it super hot.
Adding lots of orange on top of blue, some orange circles pink background, old photos from a LIFE magazine, some vegetables and old paintigns collaged into the background. Add some black outlining the red in upper right hand corner.
