I painted this from a photograph of the Golden Gate Bridge; each time my wife walked past it, she looked at it oddly, but she never said anything. Finally another friend saw it and said, "Oh. Oh!"
Every time she had walked past the painting, Cam said to herself: "the clouds didn't look like that that day." It wasn't until someone else saw it - and gasped - that she paused to play the cloud game.
What do you see?

While this painting - of a summer sunrise over the Salinas River - was unfinished, hanging in my studio, some friends saw it and wanted to buy it. So I finished it, framed it...now it's signed, sealed, and delivered. Hope they enjoy it.

It should be a blast. And you'll see me, Cam, and the boys there whether I'm accepted to display or not. I'll keep you posted.

I transitioned into custom woodwork and have been doing that ever since. But with the economy the way that it is, even the affluent have been affected and jobs are fewer and far between, and the shop through which I've been working is shutting its doors.
So, as one set of doors slams, I'm looking at another opening. Though this change will mean some belt-tightening and better budgeting for the Mann family, but it also means more time for art. I'm looking forward to more paint on canvas, more time in the studio, and - hopefully - a few more commissions. New doors, baby!
