These are just for fun! I was fooling around in my studio. I like to do self portraits because they are a chance to work from a free live model, and the challenge is great for mainttianing my skills. This song came up on my youtube playlist and so I got the karaoke version backing track of it. I recorded the track on my android phone. Then I recorded the vocals and added reverb. I used a little android app called N-Track Studio 8. It's really cool, allows you recorded and mix tracks. This song has special meaning because I always feel like I'm losing myself in day to day life! Yes! It is me singing!
House of the Rising Sun is one of my favorite songs of all time. Ben Lee the extraordinary guitarist is posing and playing. This painting is available as a print and there is also a charcoal sketch of him playing as well. My nephew Myles Morillo filmed it, and yes, that's me singing!

Michael Harding makes the best paints on the planet and I'm really proud to use them and that puts me right in there with David Hockney and Damien Hirst who also use them! #michaelhardingoilpaints
