This was a labour of love, my friends. Back in November when we lost George, I just knew I had to do something artistic to express what I was feeling. The idea hit me when we were assigned to paint a window with a theme of our choice behind the window: realistic but surreal, if we so choose. I felt that was the perfect opportunity to create my tribute to George. I gathered pictures for referances but didn't copy them detail-to-detail, but rather viewed them carefully and illustrate my own vision of George. To fill in all the spaces, I came up with sort of a middle-eastern-hippie-psychedelia to make it all "flow" together. Perhaps the most compelling portion is that of the memorial sight on the top left-hand corner. In total, this piece took me roughly two weeks to complete. It is a 24x20 in size, which is quite large, and the medium I used were oil paints. In order to scan the whole picture, I had to scan it section by section, and glue the pieces together to make the picture you see above. Thats why the quality isn't its best. But that was quite a task! This piece is entitled "Why George?" and it is purely the work of me. I am very proud to have done it, and I hope you like it too.
Here is my newest portrait of Paul McCartney. I really like the way it turned out.
This is a rough sketch I did as an outline for a painting project. The image of George is behind a window. If the painting turns out good, I'll scan that as well.
My original intention of this piece was to support John and Yoko's legacy for peace in 1969. It is entitled "War Is Over" one of their infamous slogans. During 1969, the couple wore a lot of white perhaps to symbolize the purity they stood for. Ironically enough, I unwittingly finished this picture on September 11, 2001, the day tragedy struck.
I rather like this one. This potrait I drew September 23, 2001 was my token of appreciation for Pattie Boyd. I think she is a symbol for natural beauty and the portrait really captures her features well. This piece is simply entitled, "Beauty".
This exceptional masterpiece was created by my dear friend, Gemi. I am in LOVE with this piece. She has trully captured the beauty, essence, and soul that made George Harrison. Look at her use of shading, its just fantastic. Bravo, Gem!
My awesome buddy GemLa has done it again! This is a fantastic work of psychedelia! Very colorful and creative.
Drawn By: Rori Shapiro. Absolutely perfect! Beautiful portrait.
This stunningly accurate masterpiece was created by Rori Shapiro, a dear friend of mine. She went to art college (and it really payed off as you will see in her various works), as well as a music college, LIPA owned by Paul McCartney, himself.
Extroadinary! Anyone with a fine appreciation for art must applaud this tasteful piece of Artbeat, drawn by the talented 'Ivory Starr'.
This is the beginning of an unfinished piece I started years ago. Though incomplete, it still shows a strong resemblance to Stuart Sutcliffe and Astrid Kirchherr.
Yes, Miss Rori Shaprio has done it again! A captivating portrait of Ringo Starr. If your taking down notes, then observe her use of lines on the face. Just excellent, Rori.
