GET THIS THROUGH YOUR HEAD YOU - Nicky (Joe Pesci) confronts Ace (Robert De Niro) in the Nevada desert in a classic scene from 1995 film "Casino". Painted on 20" x 16" box canvas in standard b&w acrylic. (MAY 2014)

I was going to begin this second year of painting by experimenting with colour…but i just don’t feel the time is right yet – I am still loving the black and white effect, its so much more classy/polished.

So, at the end of April I started this piece, taken from the scene in “Casino” where gangster Nicky (Joe Pesci) meets Tangiers Casino boss Sam (Robert De Niro) in the Nevada desert and yells “Get this through your head you Jew motherfucker you – you only exist out here because of ME!… Don’t ever go over my head again, you motherfucker you!” Classic scene, classic Joe Pesci.
