    Jeffrey, Have been looking at your blog for a long time and am one of your fans. I love the way you push the color. Also enjoyed reading about your light box and will try to set one up for me.
    Your story about your melanoma was very very interesting and I just want to tell you how happy I am that you are well and that you have written about this. thanks for your wonderful art and for you sensitivity. Jeanne

    Jeff, you have been an inspiration to me since I started blogging 3 years ago. I went to one of your Open Studios in the South End and was thrilled to find you such an open and generous artist. Since then I've started giving talks to art associations, and I always mention you and pass along your info. This painting, as with all your work, makes an everyday object monumental, and it makes you stop and say to yourself "I've never really considered the beauty in a pear before!" Thank you.
