Glad to hear it, John....you are exactly right, it "pops" of the wall! All the best, Bruce

Hi Bruce, I love the frame! I usually frame my paintings with a floating frame too...that way you can see the edges of the canvas. Best, John

Hi John, Yes, Samantha emailed the photo of the painting on your easel overlooking the park. If I understand you correctly that you also have one of you working on the painting there, that would be wonderful. Samantha said she would forward to you a couple of photos of the painting hanging in our foyer. At the suggestion of James Woods, a framer here in Birmingham, we decided to mount it in a floating frame. Here is a link to James Woods; he is an interesting guy, and a very respected artisan: http://www.framingbirmingham.com/our-framer.html We would appreciate knowing what you think about how the frame interacts with your painting. All the best, Bruce

Hi Bruce, I am so glad you guys like the painting! I think Samantha emailed you the photo of me painting in Dolores Park. If not, am sure we can get you a copy. Best, John

B TIMPSON 3/23/2015 | 3:24 PM

John, While we were deciding to purchase Dolores Park, I seem to recall there was a photo posted on your page of the canvas with the live scene behind it. If so, do you by chance still have it, and would you consider emailing me a copy? We would love to have it to share as part of the story behind the work. All the best, Bruce

John, We are thrilled to have "Dolores Park" hanging in our foyer. It is the first thing that friends and family see when they enter our home, and it sets the tone for warm, friendly gatherings, much like that of the folks lounging on the grass. Thanks, John, for this strikingly beautiful piece. We look forward to enjoying and sharing it with guests for many years to come. All the best, Bruce
