Dark landscape - a copycat painting

This is my attempt to copy a painting I saw on Pinterest.

8" x 8" x 1" acrylic on canvas

And here is the beautiful original painting by Hester Berry:

oil on board

Sadly, I'm too impatient to bust out the oil paints and palette knives.  Squirt some acrylic on a paper plate and GO!

Help me, Tom Cruise!

A painting of Tom Cruise?  Why not!
6" x 6" x 1.5" acrylic on canvas

He needs a sparkle on the teeth.  I might attach a bedazzle.

Hopefully this painting does not summon some sort of Scientology demon into my home.

Heeeere's Johnny!

Here's Jack Nicholson from The Shining.

6" x 6" x 1.5" acrylic on canvas

I was trying to paint his face in the scene where he creepily stares out the window.

There might be some out of control paint blobs happening on his mouth.  There was a struggle.

Since I've been so lax about posting paintings, I thought I would drop this blog and let the domain name expire.  But then I saw a biker gang with "Veni, Vidi, Vici" embroidered on the back of their leather jackets.  Hell, that's all the encouragement I need.
