    Default EVH Oil Painting! Need your help....

    Hey guys,

    A friend of mine is an extremely talented professional artist in Ohio. He has painted portraits for a number of professional athletes in town (no Bengals jokes please). I've finally convinced him to paint a large oil painting of EVH. The problem is that I need to find the perfect picture for him to paint from. I'm trying to find that quintessential picture of Ed that captures all the best about him (the guitar, that shit eatin' grin, etc). I've got a couple of ideas but would really appreciate any picture suggestions.

    Thanks in advance

    i'd go with the sissor kick mid 90's black and white shot from Guitar World. It captures Ed at his finest in my opinion and also gets a great view of his musicman, striped shoes...blah blah blah...my favorite photo of the man!

    If your buddy paints this up, i'd buy one

    Yeah...what SNIC said.

    When I think of Eddie, there are three images that immediately come to mind. I can only find the links to two of them.

    First and foremost...


    Second...


    I'll find the third one later. Working...

    Awesome link! This is going to be pretty hard to pick just one.
    Thanks SNIC!

    A little more frontal though. More like what Lehabs has for his first suggestion. You need the color and the red and white striped guitar.

    My third favorite Eddie pic I still haven't been able to find it online. I have it in a whole bunch of magazines, but I'm not going to get it and scan it. Anyway, Ed's wearing the yellow & black "tiger" jacket and the jeans with the brown leather patches. He's looking right at the camera and it's a great shot.

    Also, there's this one:

    I've always been partial to this one:



    Either this, or a vintage "flying eddie" shot of some sort....
