Polo Picnic

Oil on linen, 6" x 6"
There's something about spectator sports that makes people want to eat, and something about polo that makes them want to dress up. The result can be some nice painting material...

Opening at the F.A.N. Gallery

Everything went very well at the opening Friday night in Philadelphia. Here I am with Fred, the gallery owner, a man who is wonderfully passionate about painting. The show looked great, if I do say so myself, and several paintings sold while I was there at the opening.

It turns out that the first Friday of the month is a big time in Old City, Philadelphia, with galleries staying open until 9PM and lots of funky bars and restaurants in the neighborhood. Philadelphia Style magazine published a great article about First Fridays which included an interview with Fred.

The gallery has a new website and a new blog, where they published a short interview with me. The show is up until October 1, although it will be closed Sept. 21-25 because of attendance at the USArtists show, which is a fundraiser for the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
