A few days ago I posted about my love for Living Legend Walt Frazier...and shared the weird and sincere painting I did of him.
....and then this happened!
Needless to say, I'm still reeling from the excitement.
I'm about to take a vacation now that my holiday commissions are complete and shipped. I'll be updating the website soon so it will be ready to go for 2016!
Pet portrait commission openings are coming...email me if you'd like to get on the list! (If I've talked to you previously, you're on it.)
Be safe out there, please.
Tonight the New York Knicks play the Portland Trail Blazers right here in Portland, Oregon.
And THAT means a LEGEND will be in town. The one and only Walt 'Clyde' Frazier. ::swoon::
I'm a great big fan.
I look forward to the ONE time a year the Knicks play the Blazers in Portland. Mostly so I can see Walt Frazier!
Not only is he one of the greatest basketball players of all time...but he's got decades of legendary style under his belt (literally and figuratively, I presume!)
I was inspired to paint a little ditty of my favorite Knicks announcer, as he is today...astounding.
Now, I've never painted an actual human likeness before...
Because I've never been INSPIRED to paint an actual human likeness before.
And that's what makes this completely awesome.
It's hilarious and imperfect and 100% sincere.
Art is fun!
It's the Annual Big 500 Show at Pioneer Place...and if you've never been, get your boots on because it's time! If you like local art...and big events...and giving your friends and family gifts that no one else in the world has, this is your spot.
Here's the rundown:
Facebook Event Page Here

Everything is 8"x8" and $40.
Cash/credit/carry. This is a big event with lots of people... so bring your holiday cheer!
