Here's a painting I did a while back of a very beautiful friend of mine. (I still like the idea of doing a series of paintings where I "canonize" people I know on canvas.) She herself has a Sacred Heart tattoo on her chest, so I wanted her to have an exposed front to display the glorious tattoo.
I wanted the feel of this piece to be one of purity, but also edginess. So she has dark lipstick and nails here, and a septum nose piercing, but also the starry halo and vibe of holiness. I gave the piece to the friend in question whom I painted here.
I still have to get around to painting St. Tommy Wiseau - but I need to feel up to it first, though!
