Wedding Gift Painting

Man with Painting. Darrel Perkins. Oil on Panel. 2017. 16x20"

Firstly, congratulations to my two friends John and Sarah for getting married. Now, a little backstory here:

When John and I were college roommates, he bought a piano painting I did as an undergrad. After I moved out, another roommate accidentally took it with him,
and it ended up with his dad, who loved it and swore John would never see it again. As a wedding gift, John wanted his piano painting back, and rightfully so.
However, I decided to paint our roommate's dad enjoying a glass of wine in front of his art collection.

Cheers, John!

Rose & Goat Wedding Poster

Rose & Goat Poster. Darrel Perkins. Acrylic on Paper. 2017. 24x36"

I don't often post commissions, but I thought this was a fun and interesting concept.
Intended as a wedding gift to a couple that likes music festival posters, I turned their wedding reception into just that.
