WIP More than urned

More than ‘urned’ your respect...

Work in process (WIP) on watercolor over Prismacolor that I started on 4/22. This process takes several steps and patience seeing as each new layer must dry completely or you just might as well start over. I’m showing two stages here 1.) Rough and Prismacolor before water 2.) Same image after 11 separate applications using varying gray shades of waters. I have a few to go yet.

A number of weeks ago, I was contacted by William’s sister about possibly doing a picture --or if I may have had a picture on hand-- of Paul Bearer caressing his urn with the tag-line ‘Respect must be ‘urned’ A simple enough request. There’s certainly many online to choose from, but then y’all already know that’s not me and never has been. If I’m going to do something, I don’t want it to be no magazine photo that anyone else, every website, and a thousand-million blogs already have up. It’ll be my own work; singular and unique to itself.

A small note, I can’t express the emotion that is a part of this painting through and through. Losing Bill was (and remains yet) terribly sorrowful for me. That pain no doubt created this work and it is, though unfinished, the best work I’ve done of him. I’m very pleased w/ it. Also, when I posted this work on my personal Facebook I was asked about the urn that Paul was holding. Which one was it. Well, that is in fact my mother’s urn. (Yes, her real urn) I took the design of it for use in this work. You can see a photo of it in the corner. It’s a little hint of myself in my art of two people that I truly love, miss terribly, and want most to be waiting for me when I finally cross the river.

Thank you. Without elevating myself, I know this one was powered by his loss and every raw emotion surrounding that. In this case especially, Art is the 'photograph' that otherwise would not exist. I’m thankful for memory ...to see him so clearly. The overall majority of pictures that have Paul and his urn presented the twisted faces he’s so famous for, but I didn’t want to forget his smile. It’s Paul Bearer, but it is also just as much the man behind him. Thank you everyone for your thought
