Nicolas Cage

I absolutely love Nicolas Cage. He is a wonderful actor and has been in some of my all time favorite films (The Rock, Con Air, Peggy Sue Got Married,  Gone in 60 Seconds, National Treasure...just to name a few). I will go see any film that has Nicolas Cage in it.  I'll be honest though, I don't like all of his films. But I will go see them simply because he's in them, which merits my attention. If I love them, I buy the DVD's when they come out; if not, I skip them. But Nic always gets me in the theater from the get-go.

And there's something incredibly intense (and not entirely unattractive) about Nic's face.  He has very striking masculine features, which made him the perfect choice to be the subject of my very first celebrity painting in oils. And as far as I'm concerned, this first celebrity painting was my best.
