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.

Eugen Schoenfeld . 1925 - 2019

Eugen Schoenfeld  |  1925 - 2019

My father in law Eugen Schoenfeld died early this morning at 93 following a series of medical hits over this past year. Rather than write about my own personal memories of him I am posting the obituary written by my nephew Alex Valin, with input from Gene's daughters. It is a much more substantial telling of this man's remarkable life.
