Arnold Schönberg

Arnold Schönberg (w/Katy Perry)
20" x 16", oil and acrylic on canvas, 2014
Well, the paintings aren't getting any better, are they? Looking for a surface to paint a portrait of Arnold Schönberg on, I stumbled on this two-year old acrylic painting of Katy Perry. It once functioned as a demo in a portrait class with young people (thought they may appreciate that). My wife is a Katy Perry fan but she didn't like the painting. So I painted over it. That was the intention at least, but couldn't make myself cover up those pretty lips of hers. So here's the painting then stuck behind two thoughts. The Top 100 entry for Schönberg is his second string quartet.
