Sam,
I'm new here and I just went through this posting. When are you coming out with a book? Put me on the list when you do.

Thanks, Johnny P for the very kind words. A book is something I've considered. There may be one in the near future - thanks for the reinforcement!

Kooche - they're shot, and they may have taken a brain cell or 2 with them....

Look who's talking, Ben... You're the guy who has surgery and comes back carving bigger, better and stronger everytime - you inspire me, and I'm sure others too.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. Mine was fine, but BUSY. However, I hated to see it pass.

Here's the latest painting - enamel and gold leaf on 16x20 stretched canvas. I couldn't resist showing my appreciation for Nancy Sinatra - one of my favorite '60's babes (in addition to Marilyn Munster!). It's for the M Modern Gallery Blonde Bombshells Show on Saturday, January 14.

That's funny, we were just listening to "These Boots are Made for Walking" last night. Her expression seems to change from an amused grim to a scowl. Very nice.

I just love your work Sam. Just recently I noticed my Mom has a Nacny Sinatra album in her collection. When I asked her about it she said, "I don't know why that's in there. I could never stand her." Whatever Mom, just admit it.

Thank you, Raffertiki and finkdaddy. I've been a fan of hers since before her song was featured in "Full Metal Jacket."

Great work Sam.

Portraits and specifically skin tones are difficult to do with oils and they mix well on canvas.

And you went and did it with enamels. Hats off, great job.

Good luck with the exhibition.

Thanks, Ben and Alien Tiki. I'm sort of new to the portrait stuff, so your kind words mean MUCH to me! Ben, Cher....interesting! Maybe the early '70's Cher from the show with Sonny. That's how I remember her most.

Nice painting Sam. Nancy Sinatra? Great subject. How you do that with enamels just kills me. M Modern Gallery's Blonde Bombshells? Get down an' get back up again! She'll be in good company, I'm sure.
