An Uninvited Guest.

This painting ran away from me. Ike Turner died today and he lived about 20 miles away from me in San Marcos, CA. I thought I would look at some photos of him and make a little tribute painting. Well I found a portrait of Tina that I liked and I started to paint a portrait of her. Before you know it the hair that I had sketched for her began to look like a turban so I went with that. I added an Ike style mustache and this character showed up in my studio. He doesn't look all that happy to be here. 6" x 8" oil on canvas panel. $40 Free Shipping
