This is a new painting I just finished, a small landscape on a Belgian linen canvas. I did this to repay one of the nicest favors that anybody has ever done for me. A person I never met before went through considerable efforts to hook me up.
I was so absolutely floored by this persons generosity of spirit, that I made this painting. A humble gesture on my part, but I wanted to do something in return. I mailed it back, and never felt better about doing a painting for somebody in my life.
I hope to be able to “pay it forward” – doing some random act of kindness for somebody else down the road.
In the meantime, I hope my new friend likes the painting.
