My painting of Alan Watts

Alan Watts, Painting by Anthony Greentree
Alan Watts. The painting is based off a photo personally chosen by his son Mark Watts.
I received a lovely email from Alan Watts son Mark this morning about the painting I have done of his father for the exhibition 'The Eternal Now'. After the event it will go to the Alan Watts Mountain Centre near the Pt. Reyes National Seashore north of San Francisco. Here is his message:

"Hi Anthony,
The painting is remarkable, and powerfully captures his essence well beyond that of the photo. Remarkable, a true artist's vision!

And of course we look forward to adding it to the Center's art works, which is a collection that so far lacks a portrait of its founder, and we have passed on a few!
Thank you so much, and best of luck with the exhibition,
