There is a lovely 4 page article on the exhibition featured in April's American Art Collector Magazine.  It features a handful of paintings from the show, including my self portrait.

The last painting of mine included in this show is a painting I create "en plein air" from the back deck of the house in Sullivan's Island, South Carolina that the thirteen of us rented for the week.  There is a photograph of me painting another painting of this spot in the catalogue for the show.
