Well, I’m not sure where to actually begin on this latest ICONS & LEGENDS portrait as it’s been on my list for the last two plus years and just never got around to finding the inspiration to do him yet.

That all changed last winter when I had decided to merge my design business that I had for th 20+ years into my art site and rebrand myself as a visual artist.

I need to simplify my life and I also was really in the mood to clean and clear things out. I was also struggling on how to break out of these smalls I had been working on and really wanting to get back to doing larger pieces.

Heather had mentioned that she had recently watched the Tom Petty documentary titled “Wildflowers”.

While I have admired and respected his work over the years, watching this documentary (which I have now watched three times) was so inspiring it only made sense that he would be my first portrait of 2024.
