With my daughter Jojo at LACMA. From the newly released @makerswhoinspire documentary by @henryzw on my work and life in LA. In the video (link in bio) I discuss the motivations behind my work, how being a father has affected me as an artist and give the best advice I can to young artists looking to further their careers.

Recently I had the great privilege of @henryzw directing this documentary short as part of his @makerswhoinspire series on my work and life in LA.

Coup de grâce

5”x5” detail. Oil on linen.

Detail of “The Milkmaid (wrapped)”. Oil on linen, gesso and marble dust.

On the night of March 18, 1990, thieves disguised as policemen stole 13 works from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, including Vermeer’s “The Concert”. To this day the painting has not resurfaced and is thought to be the most valuable unrecovered stolen painting ever with an estimated value of $200,000,000.

“Milkmaid (wrapped)”, oil on linen, gesso and marble dust, 18”x16” (same dimensions as Vermeer’s original).

Still not convinced? 😂
