This painting was long in coming. Last April I was asked by two very good friends of mine to create an original painting for them. I agreed under three conditions: 1) That they be included in the painting, 2) that I get to use their incredible apartment as the backdrop for the painting, and 3) that I get to include them in a series I has started years ago called Scenes From a Movie. They were delighted and eagerly had me over for an afternoon of beer and photos. This painting would have been ages ago, but last summer's freelance-onslaught kept pushing my completion date back and back and back. Finally, this past week, I put the last touches on this image. I feel it's by far, technically speaking, one of my best paintings to date.
