I did this painting as a gift for my wife Leslie on our 20th wedding anniversary last week. I tell people never ask the assistant manager at a cookie store if she gives free samples, or you may pay for them for the next 27 years.

Clancy 14 x 11" Oil on canvas

Leslie told me that she felt like a heel because she didn't get me anything. Actually, she got me a nice new studio easel, but she didn't know it at the time... I just put it together last night, and can't wait to try it out. It's a Richeson Best Classic Dulce easel, if anyone cares.
