This painting of Metallica is fun and kinda raunchy, just like “The Whiskey in a Jar” video. I love the close up of James Hatfield. He looks sweet. I like the contrast of a sweet singing metal singer. I painted the drummer Dave Mustaine, and bassist Robert Trujillo early and liked my renditions. It took me a long time to get Kirk Hammett, in the way I liked. In one version he reminded me of Picasso, however it seemed a little blue period so I tried again. While I kinda liked the idea of a depressed version of Kirk Hammond, it did not seem to match his Metallica Persona so I went back into the video. And found a version that captured his happy, cocky attitude so wah la it was done.
If you love Metallica, you gonna love this Painting. If you are part of Metallica, you gonna love this painting. It is fun and captures the feeling of the “Whiskey in a Jar” and if I may say “Never cared for what they say.” It’s glorious. Buy it today. $6,500.00
