A Man and his Rats, a new painting

I always liked the lighting on this picture I took of my brother so I thought I would paint it with my known subject matter: Rats! If you knew him, you'd know he is not a big fan of any rodent. To see him surrounded by rats makes me laugh, which is also what my mom did when I showed her the painting. I call this painting 'A Man and his Rats'.

This 9x12 painting is available on eBay, click on it to see the auction.

I am now working on another 'man and his rats' painting featuring my nephew.

I've mentioned this before but in case you didn't know, years ago all I used to paint was people, when I started on eBay I somehow evolved into cats, then rats, or a combo of both. So for me it's nice to get back to people and combine them with my love of painting rats and cats.

I hope you enjoy this new direction and thanks for stopping by.
