1,000!

1,000....Daily Paintings
Thank you to all my dear collectors and friends who have helped me reach this milestone. 
1,000 panels, many brushes and tubes of paint, and many wonderful hours spent in the studio.
It is not every day you get to paint the 1,000th daily painting, I thought it would be just another day in the studio, another painting....well I felt as nervous as A-Rod going for 600 hits. In the end I finished two paintings of my favorite subjects, but I really see them as one, enjoy!
