Inspired by the Bill Murray movie "St. Vincent". . . I wanted to pay tribute to the Dutch painters like Johannes Cornelisz and Venetian Painters of the Golden Age such as Lotto (Brother Gregorio Belo of Vicennza, c. 1547). Not sure I would call this a dark comedy, but Bill Murray plays a sarcastic, grumpy old man. . . someone I could relate to. But underneath it all, a boy he ends up (kinda) be-friending sees thru all the smoking and drinking and gambling and at the end of the movie verbally paints a picture of Vincent's Sainthood. Every time I watch it I'm brought tears. Maybe someday I'll be seen that way too. As the Vincent character has many layers so does my painting. . . down to the cracks.
