I had the honor of being introduced to the amazing Burt Young. Burt is an incredible man and a talented artist. I am paraphrasing a bit here but he told me that all he needs is a canvas and some colors and he is happy as can be. After spending some time with Burt and getting to know him a bit I decided to start my painting of him. I pick one of the original Rocky films where he portrayed Uncle Paulie in. I felt this was such a great way to immortalize him and it is such a classic character. He seemed to like it very much and that is my story, I am sticking to it!
