Update: From mid 2014 to late 2017 I was basically sidelined by an autoimmune system problem that made it impossible to continue with my work schedule. Everything from planning, painting, and participating in press opportunities was affected. I managed to struggle through a handful of paintings, and quickly realized that I wouldn’t be able to maintain any consistency.
Fortunately in late 2017 my autoimmune system calmed down on its own, and I was able to start painting some small pieces. During the last several months I’ve worked to regain my strength and endurance, and more work is currently underway. Having said that, it’s great to be back!
Thanks to everyone at the AMFPA, as well as MFPA Inc. for their support.
Lastly, many thanks to my amazing wife Kristi for all of her help, this has not been easy!
