Last week I had a full-page spread in the local paper, The Intelligencer. A lady phoned me right away asking me questions about this painting. I didn’t hear from her again , but a couple of days later, someone e-mailed me about the same painting.It turned out that the man with the bicycle on the beach in Pres’quile Park in Brighton, is the father of the young man that contacted me and the first caller was his mother. I had taken a photo off him ( without his knowledge ) a couple of years ago and always wanted to paint him. The young man bought the painting and I even gave him the original photo I had taken. What a coincidence !
