Good friends Howard and Denice Anderson, commissioned me to paint a large
3 panel work for their beautiful home in Sunbury. The painting began as an
exercise in design, but developed into a painting about our friendship and some
of the many things we share in common....a love of art, design, gardens, the
Japanese aesthetic, light, birds, and the patterns of nature.
Looking in on the Andersons…..elements of a friendship can currently be seen
at this years Hidden Faces Exhibition.
The exhibition is a fascinating collection of portraits from artists throughout the state.
