New Painting - El Luchador!

Here's a new-ish painting I finished recently.  It's acrylic paint on a 16"x20" canvas.


I had it ready just in time for the EAV Strut a couple of weeks ago.  I had a few people stop and ask if I was channeling my inner Phantom Troublemaker.  Originally this was going to have the Mexican flag as the background.   After I painted it (from memory), I realized I had actually painted the  Hungarian flag.  Whoever ever heard of a Hungarian luchador?  So much for using visual references.  So I ended up using colors from the mask instead.  There is a line in red sharpie just under the wording that's got to have at least 6 coats of paint on it before I was able to cover it up.  The day after drawing the B! logo it occurred to me that I may have just invented the Big Lots logo.  Luckily I hadn't (visual references!).  I have another painting using the same character that I'm just about finished with.  It turned out pretty well and I'll post it as soon as it's done.
