A Portrait from the Mailbag

Lee Wilde portrait of Bon

“Lee Wilde” sent the below email through from Perth, where he works on his portraiture. Lee writes: “My work is mainly figurative…female portraits and nudes”.

The above painting, it seems, now hangs proudly in the office of Doug, the president of the WA Bon Scott Fanclub.

Strange that we didn’t meet last year in Perth/Fremantle Lee! – Perhaps next year at the AC/DC concert in Perth?

Here’s Lee’s original message:

Hi Lucas

I was just surfing around some art sites…came across your blog and
thought I’d show you a portrait I painted of Bon Scott last year. It
was bought by the President of the Bon Scott fan club here in Perth.

Feel free to post it on your blog if you like. If you’d prefer one
without the copyright watermark, let me know.
