Thanks for all the birthday wishes!
I didn't paint today..but I resurrected one of my favorite paintings of my own vintage "John Shaft" suede coat for this post. I think when I painted it I was trying to think of ideas for the Gamblin Torrit Grey competition. I never did follow through--but I like the study I did..how can I not? Do you have an article of clothing from your past that you really really like? Believe me when I tell you nothing was more cool than the Shaft type coat. Today is my birthday!--the candles are 5+?, but I don't mind telling you that I am 59 today! Go me! Thanks to all of you who remembered my birthday. Soon all this holiday hoopla will be over with and it'll be back to the studio. I have lots of ideas about what I am going to work on. Plans! Oh! It is so great to get older.....It is exceptional to have a history that includes a Shaft coat....Advertisers want us to never get older, but there is nothing better.
