August was a busy month. Suddenly there were a lot of commissions to complete and many were in blues, like the two above. My father passed away at the end of the month after a long struggle with Lou Gehrig's Disease and it was a life changing moment. My friends and clients have been wonderfully supportive and I appreciate them so much. Now I'm looking forward to a September filled with art shows and painting for the High Point Furniture Market shipment in a few weeks. Busy is good.
