This image was planned a year ago already. When I started it, I was not aware
that Dirk Benedict and Dwight Schultz were coming to a convention in Europe.
I had a booth at another convention 300 km from that place. So I asked two
friends to help me running my booth for one day, while I went to the other
convention to meet "the guys".
I am quite happy with this painting. There are a lot of details that I like and I
caught the likeness of the characters really well. I still need to do some work
on the painting, but that will not happen before next year.
Dirk Benedict and Dwight Schultz with my painting. Dirk Benedict played a guest role in the german
film "Goldene Zeiten" and cited some lines in german from it. He also kept his BVB cap on for the
Dwight Schutz with the crazy look that made him and his film charakter "Howling Mad" Murdoch famous.
Oh, and I needed to do that... That's me in the front of the A-Team Van
The guys would have been there too, but I had to leave early to get back to my own booth at
the convention in germany.
I am very happy that I finally got a picture of both actors with my painting.
So, many thanks to Dirk Benedict and Dwight Schultz!
I will be working on a Starbuck painting in the near future, as I am a big fan of the original series and films.
It will be in good company to the Apollo painting of 2008, that still needs to be finished too.
