Open Studios at the Button Factory 2014 in the books!

Max at Button Factory Artist Open Studios
The Button Factory annual artist open studio event in Portsmouth, NH was this past weekend and was by far, the most fun open studio Ive attended in the seven years I've had a space there.  Largely because of that smiling character pictured above...thats my talented seven year old Max holding his marker on canvas paintings.  He was a huge hit and made many patrons very pleased with their purchase.  He completely sold out of his art work and I couldn't be prouder having observed his sincerity and graciousness with his collectors.  "Daddy, I can't wait to see someone walking away with one of my paintings", he said to me before the event.  Incredible day!!!  So happy for my whipper-snapper!  Way-to-go pups!    

Friend Tim Connors standing next to my newest painting, "Ripples" (38x48") at my Open studio this weekend.
Thanks for the photo Tim.  I heard that this years open studio welcomed upwards to 4,000 people...if thats true, thats pretty amazing!  It was a packed all weekend and very spirited.  I met so many nice people, saw some extraordinary work in other studios, had some chuckles and some fine, single malt scotches too...OK, I'm saying it rite here and Open Studio yet.  Boom!
