'Bob's Market' installation

This is a painting that was done about 11 years ago and was not for sale for a long time.  My wife loved it and held onto it for all these years.  The painting is based on a local market in Santa Monica where we lived when we were first married.  There are a lot of memories to this painting  To the right was a barbershop where I used to get my haircut for $7.  Recently, my wife was ready to 'let go' of the painting and it sold through my gallery, High Desert Gallery, to a couple here in Bend.  On Tuesday night, we personally delivered and installed the painting.  Thanks Kent and Anne for the purchase!

96" x 18" / oil on canvas / circa 2000
