    Hello Everyone,

    I have not had much access to a computer lately, but I wanted to stop by and show you my latest art project.

    I was honored with a commission by a co-worker to do a painting of his grandfather's ship he served on during the war (USS Denver CL-58). He gave it to his grandfather this last Christmas, and I last week I was very honored to receive a photo of the Veteran with my artwork.

    So here is my photo of Mr. Phillip Candelaria, who worked in the engine room on board the Denver, holding my painting. I have not had to honor to meet him yet, but I hope to very soon as I hear he had quite an experience on board the ship.

    Anyway, I was very honored to do the project, so I thought I would share.

    Phenomenal work.

    And it must be so rewarding to see the your painting in that veteran's hands.
