The UK Lexington Commission by Billy Hedel 2015 (both panels)

UK/Lexington commission by Billy Hedel (acrylic on canvas, 2 panels, 36×36″ each, 36×72″ overall, 2015)

When  the University of Kentucky Wildcats  won the SEC Tournament Championship Sunday, we went to the archives to pull up these images of a commission Billy completed in 2015 for a client.  The client and her husband are UK grads and die-hard Wildcat fans who wanted a touch of blue for their Evansville home.  The double panels (each 3 feet square) were designed to be hung side-by-side for a six-foot long mural, or independently.  The left panel highlights the Wildcats and UK campus, and the family’s children as basketball players.  The right panel details the icons and landmarks of Lexington.

This commission is an example of Billy’s ‘story painting’ –  pictures that contain a personal story unique to a client or a place (such as a Haynie’s Corner First Friday event). Billy has made story paintings as wedding and anniversary gifts, memorials and for special events.  Contact the studio at 812/3034722 or at for more information or visit our ‘Commissions information’ page on this site.
