What the Month of May Brings

May begins with an oil portrait, Antonio and a charming story. Featured Artist, Tom Morgan of Vancouver, Canada shares his experience:

Antonio [is] my neighbour in Spain. He lives next to our Villa in Otivar and always complained about not getting enough work. After I painted his portrait we decided to surprise him by hanging a Giclee print of the painting in the local bar that he frequents. It went over really well. On my next visit to Spain he told me that the portrait had changed his life and he now had too much work. I feel really good about that. - Tom
