King Of The Hill

King Of The Hill

King of the hill was inspired by a photo shoot I did many years ago with my old friend Daniel Smith. The shoot was so long ago the images were on film not digital. I never did use the images and they laid in my photo pile for well over a decade. When I came across the photos I instantly wanted to paint something from the experience and King Of The Hill is what came out of me.
