Geoffrey Raymond

Geoffrey Raymond specializes in paintings of Wall Street and political icons such as former Bear Stearnes CEO Jimmy Cayne and former NYS governor Eliot Spitzer.

Geoffrey Raymond Raymond also draws and paints other financial personalities such as CNBC's Maria Bartiromo as a saint. Hmmm. Here is a fascinating video of his process:
