The head of my MFA program at Hartford, Murray Tinkelman, likes to quote John Wayne. "Never apologize, it's a sign of weakness." Unfortunately, the digital image of this painting is terrible, and I have nothing but apologies for those of you who are viewing it now. My computer skills are not the best, and my abilities to color correct scanned images is even worse. This particular painting was near impossible for me to get right. If you'd like to see the original, it's hanging up at the Joseloff Gallery at The University of Hartford as part of the 2011 graduating show. Stop by if you're close, I'd love to say "Hi."
