Happy Birthday Wing -- and Happy Weekend everyone

My client Wing is in New York City today, the lucky
guy (one of my favorite cities in the world), so I thought
I'd show you this picture of Wing in my kitchen
photographing himself with his portrait.

Sometimes I take a portrait to my clients, but most
of the time clients come and pick up their commissioned
work here.  Either way it's always an emotional exchange.
I am excited because the work is done, and I have put
my heart and soul into it, and the client is excited and
happy because our collaboration has made an idea come alive.

It's so gratifying in ways I can't even describe when
a subject loves the painting, and Wing did.  I am
almost over this cold/flu bug, and every improvement
is so welcome.  Wing's happiness and the sound of
robins singing in the spring today made me

Have an enjoying-happy-results day.
