Dark Night, 1987 - acrylic on canvas, 24 x 18 in, 61 x 45.7 cm
Description: This is my first painting, painted one dark night up in the Hollywood Hills. My wife Cassie had been fighting ovarian cancer for the past year. It was a painful time. I had bought myself an easel, brushes, and paints many years before which had lain dormant under the staircase. At four in the morning on this dark night, I painted this portrait with my fingers.
