A view of the palatial estate that serves as my studio, a world famous* icon known throughout northwest Oklahoma City as the Stu-Stu-Studio. America thinks the studio needs some spiffing up, and the way to do it is to have good Americans (Or anyone else. I'm not jingoistic like that and, in fact, I think the French, the Bretons in specific, are super cool.) support the arts by welcoming in the crisp, refreshing nectar that is a Bennett Berry painting from the Howell Gallery www.howellgallery.com. Do it because it's what your beloved pets and favorite sports team would want you to do. Do it with the quiet charisma of Michael Landon. Do it with aplomb, like all champions do.
*"world famous" only in northwest Oklahoma City, moderately famous elsewhere.
In the absence of Thunder basketball and, hence, the absence of any quirky photoshops referencing Thunder basketball, I urge you to look to Sarah MacLachlan for guidance. She wants you to go to www.howellgallery.com and consider local art for your home. Otherwise, she'll put you in the arms of an angel. Her words, not mine. I'm not violent like that.
Thunder Up! Since a couple of my Thunder playoffs photoshops have gone a little viral within OKC, I've decided they can go up on the painting blog. I'd appreciate it if credit is given when/if the image is reused for Facebook/Twitter purposes. As an artist in OKC, exposure is a very good thing and I'm terrible at self promotion.
