The Snake Charmer

"The Snake Charmer," oil on canvas by Paul Richmond, 40" x 30"
My new painting, “The Snake Charmer,” is the latest in a series of circus/sideshow inspired pieces for my show this summer at the Lyman-Eyer Gallery. I’m enjoying putting my own spin on this theme, in this case modifying the traditional snake charmer image with a tattooed rendition of my own “charmer,” my partner Dennis. “The Snake Charmer” is available to purchase through the Lyman-Eyer Gallery. Visit my page on their site for details. It will be held until the exhibition this summer, opening July 6 and closing July 18. Small, medium, and large limited-edition prints are currently available in my online store.

simply amazing! you can tell the subject matter is pretty special to you because you did an incredible job bringing him to life on canvas! so is the subtext here, go to a professional when getting your nipple pierced and don't leave it to a chance encounter? your pieces are the best!
