This is a scetch I did before I did the painting of the same style for Spencer Marks. He wanted himself to be depicted nude with yellowish Adonis-like hair and with the Crow on his hand. The reason for this was that his wife's mother, his mother-in-law, didn't like him very much and was always kind of spiteful to him. So Spencer wanted to give her this painting for Christmas present, as he probably knew that it would shock her, confirming the bad guy that she considered him to be. Since Spencer lived near Colorado Springs, I depicted a mountainous scene from the Rockies at the background. Spencer was happy with the way it came out, and I wish I could see how his mother-in-law reacted. So this dramatic picture was made as a joke gift for Christmas for his mother-in-law.
