To my blog followers: The portrait started out like this...than I added a red background and turned it in to a political poster lampooning Mike but by election night it turned in to ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray” with Mike looking like a space alien turned burn victim.
This was a very beautiful yellow phase and I talk about how people saw Munchs The Scream the hands holding Mike’s head but that was not intentional.
The first time you see the painting....the beginning stage before I make in to a portrait!
