This is a commission that I started well over a year ago. Because of my schedule and work load it can take a long time (as some of you are aware) to get to and finish personal commission pieces. I promise...they're worth the wait.
The client wanted themselves portrayed as if they were THE Casablanca movie poster (painted masterfully by C.M. Dudash). I wanted to get as close as possible to the original poster, but decided not to use the same pictures as Dudash had. The Plane, buildings, even the palm tree are different. I believe it emulates the classic image well enough, while adding a new, original flavor.
