“Pool Shark” is a private commission, illustrated in acrylic paint on hot press illustration board. It sits in a private residence in California in a game room on a wall next to a billiards table. Most of he illustration is a thin layer of transparent paint over white board, producing all the various shades and colors of the shark, balls, felt, and background in the illustration. The original suffered an unfortunate accident with a stray billiard ball which shattered the glass frame it was in. I ended up repairing the illustration with opaque shades of green paint to cover the scratches the glass left on the surface of the illustration. It looked as smooth as it did before the accident when I was finished with the restoration.
