"Born To Run" - Bruce Springsteen Portrait
A few years ago, I had about 10 pieces hanging at a gallery on Music Row in Nashville. The gallery director suggested I add another into the mix: Bruce Springsteen. Now, I’m not a huge Springsteen fan, but I appreciate his work. I also trusted the gallery director, so I followed his advice. I decided to add him to my "Giants of Rock" series that included Paul McCartney and Bob Dillon. I chose to add Springsteen to this series because I was experimenting with light and shadow.
During the painting process, I was also playing with a pouring technique. That involves mixing fluid acrylic paint with an airbrush medium and then spraying it with water and sometimes alcohol. That’s what gives this Bruce Springsteen portrait such a distinguished look. Not to mention that shadow on half his face! It turns out that the gallery director was right. That portrait quickly sold to a woman visiting Nashville from New York City. Later, she commissioned two more paintings from me. What’s available here are reproductions in various sizes.
Original painting size is 36 x 48 and full-size (and smaller) giclee on canvas reproductions are available. Contact me for custom sizes.
New from Roy Laws Art: Re-Creations!
So you love a painting, but the original is already home with someone else. What to do? I now offer to recreate the painting for you in the size and even colors you like. I even promise to drink beer and listen to loud music while I'm doing it to accurately match the environment the original was created. You can choose the "recreation" option below or contact me if you'd like something altered.
