My good friend Sonny Williams painted this! He's primarily a poet, writer, editor and imbiber of good, strong drink, but lately he's started painting.

This is the second portrait I've had done, but my first as a musician. And this is probably the first of the uke.

Here's a cool knife painting of a pineapple he did over the weekend.

Very cool. I love that pineapple one especially! I've had my portrait done by a painter before. Ended up seeing my mug on a gallery wall. My ex-barber bought it. I didn't tip him.:p

ex because, well... no hair now, you see. :(

I wonder if he can do one of Cosmo Kramer holding a uke.

are you sure there isn't a reverse dorian gray painting of you in the attic with luscious fabio hair?

Sorry, the 1st painting doesn't look anything like you. Any way of adding the uke to the 2nd painting? :D

... I like them both :shaka:
