Bill Murray

"Lost in Translation"
11x14 oil on linen

This painting was pretty damn fun to paint! I've been a Bill Murray fan for a long time, and when I was approached to do a piece inspired by him and his works, I was very stoked! Lost In Translation is one of my all time favorite movies, the fact that it has Bill Murray in it has a lot to do with that, so I thought I'd take a stab at painting him as his character "Bob Harris". It was a toss up between this, Groundhog Day, Ghostbusters and Rushmore. I might do one of those other ones some day...

This piece will be exhibited at the event: The Murray Affair: The Bill Murray Art Show
All the info can be found there, but the show is happening on August 8th in San Francisco at Public Works SF and I'm very exited about it!

Also the show is gaining hype on the internet from various sites online, here are 2 that feature my painting:

and The Reynolds Report

Thanks to Ezra and Julie Croft for putting on the show and I can't wait to see what other artworks will be there!
