Been a little while since I put up a Painstlinger post, but … I just finished another portrait and am putting it up. This painting has already been sold, but if you would like to commission another, please contact me.

If you would like to check out my other paintings, please see my gallery of early work, and here for my Cash@Folsom.

It’s been awhile since I’ve done an update on THE PAINTSLINGER, but I’m about to remedy that right now.

In addition to writing, I also am wont to paint. It’s been a staggering seven years since my last one — I’ve spent much more time working on the book — but I recently finished a painting of Johnny Cash that turned out pretty well. It was nice to know I could still do it. Hell, it’s just like riding a bicycle.

This one has been sold. However, if you would like to commission a new portrait, or prints of the ones viewable here, please contact me.

While they’re still cheap. (Reasonably cheap.)

I have mentioned elsewhere on this site that, in addition to being a writer, I am also an artist. The Paintslinger, if you will. Well … allow me to prove it.

I don’t paint as much as I used to — given a choice between writing and painting, I will choose writing every time. It’s all the same to me, I can paint a picture with brush and canvas, or words and keyboard. When I do paint, however, I specialize in portraits. Celebrity portraits. I know … shocker.

Below, I am posting a dozen or so photos paintings done between 1986 and 2001. Most are approximately 24” x 36”, done in monochromatic acrylic (mainly blue and white). I may put up more in the future, depending what kind of response I get. I also have quite a few pencil portraits, which I might post as well, under the heading (what else?) … The Leadslinger.

Those interested in commissioning any work, are encouraged to contact me.

Enjoy the show.
