5 x 7"
oil on masonite

I couldn't resist using Opening for the letter O, continuing on with my alphabet series. This was taken from the opening reception of my show, a couple of weeks ago, at the Howard/Mandville Gallery. There was a nice, casual feel that night - and this painting needed to reflect that. The man portrayed in the scene was so kind to mention he watched my YouTube videos - I remember when I got back to my hotel room that night, it dawned on me that I reach a lot of people with what I do. And occasionally I have the pleasure of meeting those people in person, way across the globe. It really does make me proud.

Karin, Yes, you do reach lots of folks even way over here on the west coast. I'm sorry to have missed your opening when you were in my corner of the world. Thank you for sharing your work and your thoughts. Because I enjoy your blog and your painting style so much, you've inspired me to begin my own blog adventure and the best thing is I am painting/learning much more as a result. Thanks again!
