Painting of Jess Miller (Miller, Jess)

The painting, Miller, Jess (2006) 48" x 40" oil on canvas was sold last week. Ordinarily I would not mention something like this, but it has been more than ten years since any of my figure paintings sold, and this is a much needed shot in the arm.

I remember a gallery owner telling me twenty years ago that I should never paint the figure because no one wants to buy a picture of someone they do not know.

Well, go figure.
