I love this painting.  I’ve known Jason since the opening of the Pier.  He’s a talented musician I know as part of the Tiny Room for Elephants art collective.  It wasn’t by design, but around this time, I purchased some acrylic paint markers which I intuited could be well used to make the circles needed to illustrate his great beads.  Once I put down the fiery yellow background playing off of his red beard, I feel like somewhere in my unconscious I must have been trying to mimick Vincent Van Gogh’s painting of Joseph Roulin.  I also love painting hoodies.  So Jason had it all going on.  Beard.  Beads.  Hoodie.  And his great personality.
