Thank you! Those two are most personal to me & touch on opposite extremes of my emotions:
I gave Midge Ure the original of this portrait in 1989. He loved it & seemed sincerely touched by the gift. When I met up with him a few month's later he told me he had hung the painting in his home - that meant the world to me!!!!
The John Lennon piece was done immediately after his death. I was very distraught & that is why it is so graphic & "broken", I felt like the whole world had been shattered. I always hesitate whether to display this one because of the raw emotion it brings up.
That's quite a compliment but I'm not at all surprised that he appreciated it!
You are just so talented!
I'm so glad you shared you posted the one of John...you captured so incredibly well the emotion, the shock...I have to say just looking at it brought tears to my eyes as it took me back in time.
