Chinatown

Chinatown   |   24 x 24   |   Oil on panel

It's been about two and a half months but Chinatown is finally complete. I knew going in this was going to be an epic painting but it turned out to be more of a challenge than I anticipated. I had wanted to fully immerse myself in a complex painting for a long time, selfishly, with this piece I finally gave into that urge. Fortunately for me I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

I wonder if this exceptional painting, so close on the heels of the loss of your beloved father-in-law, provided comfort to you, given that he was an avid fisherman. Yes, I read the obit. What a tender way to honor his life. It's so important not to let that part of history be forgotten. My heartfelt condolences to you and Karen, and congratulations on completing this epic work. Who knew that a painting of fish could evoke such emotion..but that it did!
