My own selfmade ZZ-Top Painting

Dear 'fellow ZZ-Top fans',

I want to share my love for ZZ Top with the rest of you. I am a 25 year old dutch portrait artist from the netherlands and translated my love for ZZ top in a painting of our beloved Billy Gibbons.
It's a personally completely handmade oilpainting. I hope u will enjoy my painting. there is no commercial pun intended here.
I'v been to a few ZZ Top concerts in my life and whenever they tour in the Netherlands and/or Belgium me and my mother (one of the few who loves ZZ Top as much as i do) are there. I hope Billy Dusty and Frank will rock on for many years.

I would love to get some comments on my painting. Could i catch Billy's mojo or not? please let me know what you like about it or what i can do better... I am a bit of a perfectionist so all comments are welcome!

if you want to seem ore paintings - u can always check my website. There are a few musicians i also adore as well, like Joe Bonamassa, Keith Richards and Willy Deville.

All the best to all fellow zz-top fans!!!

    First of all, thank you so much for your comments on my painting. It's always a fragile something to show art, especially to fans of a particular band or musician. That's why yyour words really touched me, do thanx a million for that.
    About your questions enquiring holland: i live totally in the south, near Belgium. Here is it possible to get a good job as a mechanic. I'm not sure about the big city, I live on the country-side.
    The music business here is tough. That makes sense where it's a small country with only little commercial possibilities. I must admit that we as a band aren't good enough to make lots of money with it. But wherever you are in the world as a musician it's the same thing: when you are good enough you will find your way to make some money....

    If you would come over to Holland you are most welcome to stay at my place untill you figure it when and were you try to fit in....

    Dude!! That is a great painting, I love it!! When I get done here, gonna go to yer site n cheeck out your work. You mentioned you r a workin musician in Holland. How is the music scene over there? Any work for a blues pickin hot rod mechanic over there? Everybody is drivin "green" economical cars and hirin Dj's out in my part of the woods these days. Man, you are a very talented artist!
