The Show Must Go On.

For the last two years as the artist for this painting project, I've been working on molding an idea that is simple in concept, but with a twist. 
"Venetian Gondolas" Traveler Jim Myers
I've been trying to see if I can put together a world travel puzzle using paint and a brush and not leave the studio. 
"Skipool, UK" Traveler Rob Mc Ewen, UK
With the help of today's technology, friends, and Travelers from around the world sharing their photos and stories with me, it all came together in the first showing of the project at the UIC Gallery in Chicago.
"Baskerville" Traveler Paul Spiring, UK
 Here is what the first showing of The Artist and the Traveler looked like.
"Jill" Traveler Dustin Shoenfeld, NY
