Description 9 X 12 acrylic on canvasSoldPart of a series I did about my working life - the long business trips, the extra hours in the office and customer dinners getting me home late at night, I hope the reason for these all selling out was that in them I found common points of issue and expressions of common problems shared by so many us.

Paintings have been sold since the 1970's, first to pay for entry into college. Due to needs of jobs over the years little painting, except as a need and means of personal expression, sold. For these years many were painted by request of friends and business associates. In 2002 my wife observed that we had a room filled with paintings and that we either give them away or I learn to sell them.
