Guys guys show at Gallery 1988

So I was in another show at gallery 1988 last week. Been too busy and tired to post anything during that time. Thanks to all those that came out for the support.

I chose to have a running theme through my pieces...and the theme is Greek and Roman Mythology. I always wanted to tackle the classical themes. Here is is one of the paintings I did for the show. This is my version of Hercules and the Nemean Lion.

Hi Rich,

love the mythology paintings. I wrote a short blog entry to tell my readers about it, and have taken the liberty of clipping a detail from a painting. I couldn't find your contact info, so please let me know if you would prefer to have the image removed.

A friend of mine sent me a link to you paintings, and I have to say I love them. I'm an East Asian history grad student, but as a girl I was fascinated by Greek and Roman mythology, and your art combines two of my great loves. The re-imagings of those classic stories in a Japanese setting are incredibly clever. Thank you so much for creating such lovely work!
