    Hi Jeff,
    Your work is…REALLY wonderful. All I DO is look at art..and work with art and artists (10 years). I’d like to speak with you about doing something with us…email me when you can. I’m specifically looking for “olive groves” “olive oil with other bottles” “olive vines (w/olives)” (continuous olive tree leaves with olives I guess would better describe one of the things I’m interested in.. something that could be used as a long border). I apologize..I was only able to scan your work (I’m in the middle of another project and I came across your work and HAD to at least touch base with you!) Do you ever paint red/green/yellow chili peppers? How about anything CAJUN (food items)? I am VERY picky about the art/artists I contact or want to use. I have seen these items on a LOT of sites and in a lot of galleries…they aren’t good enough. I want ART..not something that looks like someone “generic” painted it. I know you know what I mean. I’m getting ready to go to New Orleans (Mardi Gras!…and work! Would love to show some of the designers/home remodelers/builders/businesses some unbelieveably good Cajun/New Orleans style FOOD sets…scenes…
    There are MILLIONS of Jazz, houses, French Quarter, (yada, yada) paintings and photographs out there…some REALLY good. That’s not what I want..I want FOOD..Gumbo…recipies….the “holy trinity” stuff like that..but I want them as incredible ART on tiles..not prints (but I’ll let my customers know that your originals/prints are available if you’d like!) There is a desire for this kind of art I have described…most assuredly a market. You have the talent that’s for sure…I just don’t know if this is a “theme” (for lack of a much better word) that you would be interested in painting (I’m not commissioning…but if you paint them…I have people who (according to my previous marketing efforts with an artist who went on her own (we worked great together..sold a LOT of her work..but she wanted to go independant..bless her heart…but I need to replace her work and I won’t do it with just anyone. I’ve been looking for a year for just the right person!)

    Looking forward to touching base!
