Nick Fury in a Flower Crown
Summer 2013, oil, 11×14″. You know those days when you wake up and think, “I’d like to do a classical oil portrait of Nick Fury wearing a flower crown?” No? Okay, just me then.
Fury’s flower crown is made up of a bay wreath for glory, yellow poppies for success, star of Bethlehem for atonement, and pansies for thought, because I couldn’t find a flower that meant “ignores stupid-ass decisions for the good of humanity.”
This is, in all seriousness, one of my favorite things I’ve ever made.
