Exclusive photo: Stephen Moyer poses with Kristin Bauer’s portrait of Bill Compton

The “Bill Compton in Merlotte’s” painting by Kristin Bauer van Straten spent a night in the Moyer-Paquin residence this week where Stephen Moyer posed with the portrait of his alter-ego.

Stephen still sports his Movember mustache in this photo and looks different from the Bill in the painting without the sideburns and brooding look. What is very recognizable however is the hand that holds the portrait that Kristin has painted to perfection.

Kristin Bauer worked into the small hours of several nights to finish the oil on canvas portrait in time for a Holiday sale, and thanks to Stephen and his assistant who sent us this photo on such short notice, the auction will go live this weekend.

The Vault and will auction off the portrait for Kristin, but since she is the art expert, Kristin will take care of shipping the item to the auction winner.

All proceeds of the portrait will go towards Out for Africa and the survival of the African elephant and rhino.

  • I must say I am not a fan of the ‘stache.  However, it’s lovely to see Stephen.  And … double the pleasure with Mr. Moyer and his alto ego Bill Compton looking out at me.  Yes!!!!

  • I just love his beautiful  chiseled face so much I resent anything that covers any part of it.  I did love Bill’s diggers however.  The painting is on every Billsbabe’s wish list.

  • Yes, I agree.  Time for the ‘stache’ to go.  I am ready to see Stephen as we know and love him.  Great to see him and his iconic character Bill Compton together!
