Okay, it wasn’t exactly a rampage but it was tons of great fun.
I got to my Johnny Ramone painting project and just couldn’t put it down!
I never imagined I would paint Johnny but I love requests.
I’m in my pink phase so I put Johnny on a pink background. Goes well with the black leather jacket.
I played Ramones Mania while I painted. I thought of sweet Joey and of Johnny stealing his girl, his broken heart, teardrops, his sweet Taurus sadness.
The girl was no good for Joey because she didn’t really feel him but you can’t stop feeling hurt just by reasoning your way through the dark. Psychotherapy, indeed.
Johnny prints are over at DarcyArts.
Mr. Moises Domingo Rios asked for Townes Van Zandt.
Jessica Pratt suggested the columbines when I said I wanted to put flowers on the border.
They are mentioned in Townes’ sad, beautiful song, Columbine.
“Now breath upon the petals fine,” said Townes.
Colby Drosher requested David Essex.
Never in a million years would I have painted David Essex.
I really liked the portrait.
I went with polka dots on his shirt. I love to paint faces, so sue me art-elitists. I’m happy as a hog.
Oh, Mr. Mick Jagger won’tcha sing some country blues for me.
Yes, Mick is going on my list of portraits to do.
Angus Young is next. Then Arthur Lee. I’ve had him sketched for so long.
And then Poison Ivy and the late Lux Interior, and . . .
Just ask people. I take requests.
