To share is divine...

The art market is almost as fascinating as art itself. Whether one gets started through a well-connected gallery system or through street art, the name of the game is notoriety. Julian Schnabel famously applied to an exclusive program at the Whitney Museum in NYC by sandwiching his slides between two slices of rye bread...quickly becoming an avant-garde darling. Jean-Michel Basquiat arguably rose to even greater heights by rejecting the traditional routes, while having a bit of fun at the establishment's expense with tags such as "SAMO©…4 THE SO-CALLED AVANT-GARDE". Still others, such as Henri Rousseau whose painting "Portrait of a Woman" ended up in a junk shop, are discovered by Picasso and thrown a grand banquet...C'est la vie, say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell.

Our beloved Sam, if you didn't know him...you really missed out. This painting, you will notice has two bass ale bottles on each side creating an allusion to Manet's "A Bar at the Folies-Bergère."

Painted on-site, locked in the restaurant 'til morning listening to Johnny Cash's Greatest Hits on loop. It took a quite a few sessions, or maybe I just love Johnny Cash. I entered this painting in the Uniquely Fredericksburg's Art contest and won 1st place in the painting category.

Member Art First Gallery – Several Solo Exhibits

En plein air painting on the corner of Caroline and Hanover Street. This was convenient since I lived on the third floor (above the right-side pear tree) for a number of years... just walked across the street. I also sold paintings at Art First gallery (also across the street) during the late nineties.
