Hey there,

It's a painting by Juan Carlos Ferrigno who usually paints racing cars and pilots. The original painting of this particular one of CR was sold for charity for 3500 pounds. 500 personally and individually signed prints were also sold by Hope of Tomorrow Fund. I suppose all of them are sold now but you might check it on their site if there's any remained.

I found no bigger resolution copies on the web but here's one signed by CR himself plus a pic showing him signing the copies...

Chris

I think you may have posted the wrong link to the Hope For Tomorrow site. I think it might be this one you are referring to.

I have this painting hanging in my basement. I can see him singing and playing when the music is on.
