I have been pondering the results of the portfolio review that I went to Sunday. To make a long story short, most of my portfolio is photography, mostly because I quit painting for 20 years and made my living with photography.

They liked my work; actually the male reviewer said that my work was very good, however “it is after all just photography.” I resisted the strong urge to reach across the table and choke the SOB out, but just barely.

Anyway, I have decided to not put the Grand Canyon painting into the “Day of the Dead” show. I think it might be too much of a leap for people to understand how it relates to the theme. Instead I am going to put in “A Friend of the Family” a painting a friend of mine requested I paint. It is my take on a painting in the home of the “Adams Family” from the TV show. I modified it to reflect the personality of my friend.
