  Waiting For Hockney is the true story of Billy Pappas,
  a rough and tumble Baltimore artist who - on a dare -
  devotes nearly ten years of his life to creating a
  groundbreaking portrait. When he's finally finished,
  Billy and his group of eccentric supporters believe
  there is only one man who can decide if he has created
  a new art form: famed artist David Hockney.


A Film by Julie Checkoway. A Littlest Birds Films Production.
