Getting mail is still exciting to me. Email, instant message, text messages and even the phone at times make me cringe. A letter or package with my name on it is exciting at least for a moment, if it's from some agency that I don't want to deal with. Sending something in the mail takes time and that's probably what I appreciate the most. So when I open my mail box to find a package from a friend containing photographs of his recent paintings I get pretty excited!
A month or two ago Chris Thompson sent me a CD filled with images of new, and a few older, paintings that he knew I hadn't seen. After a brief discussion over the phone I decided on posting the paintings below, which are some of his most recent (the last 2 years). I hope you enjoy them.
Chris is working on making his paintings available as Giclee prints. If you are interested you can contact me through the Ofad contact form or Chris from his Myspace page.
