It would be great to see you there some time during the run of the exhibition, April 26 - May 17, 2009. The opening night unfortunately I will not be there but very fortunately in NYC unveiling my portrait of Angela Lansbury into The Players' Club permanent collection. 

More about that excitement later.....
Thank you so much for your support!

It's a wonderful painting, Johanna, and fits right in there with all of those other superstar artists' work.
HAVE A FABULOUS time at your Palyer's Club debut!! I'm sure that will be fun and exciting and gratifying for you as well!!! Plus you'll get to see Mr. Kinstler... What could be better??

Thanks for the lesson today... I had fun.
