My portrait of Robin Williams. When I heard he was dead, I just couldn't believe it. I was completely stunned. Some of my favorite movies from my childhood had him in it. And "The Bird Cage" is still one of my favorite films. I always enjoyed his performances. I will miss seeing him on the screen, but I guess like all the great comedians and actors, he had some serious demons. It's just so sad that he got to that place where he couldn't deal with it anymore.
Farewell Robin, I hope you are at peace now.
