I don’t like to play favorites, but of the paintings I’ve done this is among my top 10 concepts. For a gay artist that does gay themed artwork, it goes without saying that the ever present topic of gay marriage is bound to manifest in my work in many ways many times over the years. But, there’s only so many paintings of guys in tuxes I’m willing to do. I much rather my guys be in speedos at the beach...so viola...’Tie the Knot’ was born.
