Mister Rogers Portrait II

This piece, which was created for 20x200 (and is available there as a print!), is gouache on Arches, and is VERY BIG. It’s 56” x 35”. I have always been drawn to painting people who are inspirational to me or who remind me to be my best self in some way or, overall, who bring me comfort when I need it (which is often). In the same way that lots of people feel drawn to surround themselves with religious iconography and pictures of their family (which I am totally into painting, too), I feel drawn to paint of Mister Rogers so that people can be surrounded by the image of him. I grew up seated just a few inches from the TV set, receiving care from Mister Rogers. Receiving affirmations from Mister Rogers. Learning life lessons from Mister Rogers. Hearing that I was okay just the way I was and that, through the TV set, Mister Rogers liked me and knew I was doing the best I could. I still need to hear that, and, let's be honest, who doesn't? Long live Mister Rogers. This is an INVESTMENT, so please email me with any questions or for additional photos.
