My friend Jay asked me to paint his wife as a gift for Christmas. She’s from Mexico and they met online. It’s a great story!

Edward Hopper

It is beautiful that he ended his career painting light on a wall…
You could get a lot of artistic questions answered by simply meeting the man.
Truly great at capturing the times he lived in.

Greetings- No doubt the Seahawks are the best- but it would have been nice to see a game!
I currently have 20 works hanging outside the Mayor’s office at Beaverton City Hall.
Next is Oregon Correctional Facility. Can you imagine how much more my paintings will be worth with a security guard standing near them?

B2 Wine Bar
