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 AllStephenMoyer.com 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.
