Paintings: Peter Cushing

"Peter Cushing"

Acrylic on Canvas
Not For Sale / Gift

This handsome fellow was the chief present for my beloved pirate this Christmas. He shares my love of old movies--especially old horror movies--and greatly admires the actor Peter Cushing (who was also in Star Wars, for the Jedi among you). After finishing my painting of Vlad Dracul, I joked that Peter Cushing (who played Van Helsing on numerous occasions) should be next. "That would be AWESOME!" was the reply I received--thus, Peter Cushing!

The great joke of it all came when we were opening presents. As we were taking turns, I held the painting back until last, and so laughed heartily when I found I had received two Peter Cushing movies--The Curse of Dr. Frankenstein and The Horror of Dracula--from Santa!
