Michael Gaughan does Har Mar's portrait

The local artist who painted the iconic watercolor of GAYNGS in a hot tub and had his portrait of Andrew W.K. made into album art is at it again. This time, the prolific Michael Gaughan has taken his brush to a sexy, shirtless Har Mar Superstar, who reacted on Facebook, "My pal and one of my favorite artists, Michael Gaughan made this amazing watercolor portrait of me. So honored!" We'll say.
