This is one piece i took far too long to finish.  It's a commissioned piece inspired by my client's favorite guitarist, Eddie Van Halen, measuring 4 feet tall by 5 feet wide!  I haven't painted anything this large since college, and i was very excited about it.  It was entirely intimidating, as it was even bigger than i expected, but i had fun painting it.  It feels much more freeing to paint on such a larger scale.  Seeing as i'm in a wheelchair, i had issues reaching down trying to paint the bottom, so as i've done in the past with other large scaled pieces, i flipped the piece around and continued to paint the piece upside down.

I'm happy with the outcome and now i want to paint more this size !
