The Best Painter I Know, Personally

Look at this set of paintings by my buddy John Hampshire ...

Wow.  Four of them, each one maybe five by eight.  Feet, if that's not obvious.  What a wall they'd fill.  He's having a show in Chatham, NY soon and I suggest each of you take a trip up -- Chatham's lovely -- and try to buy one.

I've always liked my portraits best when the subject isn't staring at me.  Too much pressure.  Plus I love the narrative sprawl.  What's with that hand?  A little creepy, no?  But in a good way.
