Old Salt

Framed and signed this large (20x40") oil on wood panel painting that I just titled, "Old Salt".  Mike from the Bowersock Gallery is coming to pick it up at my studio on Tuesday to take it down to Provincetown, Mass for my opening exhibition this coming Friday evening.  I've bubble wrapped about 14 other paintings for him and I'm excited at the prospect of another great show.  It's always a good time down there and this year, Alison will finally get to join me at one of my openings.  Please feel free to come by and say hello if you are on the Cape this Friday.
The model for this painting was my brother Bobby...he's a phenomenal character and I was thrilled to paint him again.  I worked hard at editing this painting and leaving out extraneous information...really tried to simplify the design and palette.
The frame is the wonderful custom work of Henry Karakula of P.S. Art frames in Rhode Island.  I love working with this company, always top-notch work and hand delivered...gorgeous finish with closed corners.  I think this one compliments the painting well.  I'll post more from the show this week.
All the best my friends.
