I was liked and followed by this guy on Instagram. When I looked at his pictures, I had to try and paint him. It’s taken me a month working off and on to complete this. I reached out to him to see what he thought and if he was cool with this. So far I have had no response. I did this for myself, changing colors of the wall and couch to be what I consider sexier. Oil on canvas, 24″ x 36″.
I had really given up on ever finding a gallery that was right for my work. Then Ana Maria Gower came to me with this opportunity to show with the Golden Moon Gallery (goldenmoongallery.com) in San Mateo. She told me I was the first person she thought of when she saw the gallery. Now I have this piece (Persistence of Memory) up in the gallery. I’m excited by this opportunity to work with them.
