The Cool Ghoul, second version. This was painted from my favorite photograph of Dick Von Hoene, aka Cincinnati's Cool Ghoul. The first time I painted this I was going by thirty year old memories, including watching his show Scream-In in black and white. Needless to say I got a few of the colors wrong. His hat had more red and white than green, and his eyes were hazel.

Usually when I do a second version of a painting it never quite looks as good as the first attempt. I think this one is an exception, but I'll leave that up to the viewer. I think I captured his "impishness" better and I'm glad I got the colors "right" this time.

This is 16"x20", oils on canvas board.
