Great News! I got a call today that my painting "Rush Hour Rain" was sold at O'Connor's! Whoever said that hanging work in restaurants is not a good idea is......uh.... wrong! Happily I will replace the sold work with this piece..."Red Coat II" (so named because I painted it from memory of a Red Coat sketch). I painted this expressively over a previous painting that was 100% letter forms. I allowed some of the words to show through. Oooh, this appeals to the old graphic designer in me...and yes, yes, I thought of Jim Dine as I painted it.
