Painting – Kirk Demarias “Awkward Family Portraits”

Kirk Demarias creates the stereotypical J.C. Penney awkward family portrait with an important twist: he portrays fictional families from film and TV. His colored pencil masterpieces come complete with bland studio portrait backdrops, forced smiles and bad clothes. If you don’t know what films these come from you obviousely haven’t watched a movie in 30 years. He’s even done a portrait of the Breaking Bad family to stay a bit current. I’m real partial to The Torrances and the Lundegaards – William H. Macy does have a winning smile. Slightly skewed, a little naive (on purpose) and completly hilarious. Check out more of Kirks work at
