I'm really proud of Brett who has been painting again. It makes him so happy, so that makes me so happy. He has just applied to be in the VCUQatar Faculty Art Exhibit, so he has been working furiously. Here is his latest painting, and I think it is wonderful. He used a photograph that was taken by my friend Tish at the fruit and vegetable souq here in Qatar. This little Arabic man is the perfect subject to paint - full of character and depth. This picture does not do the painting justice, because the palette strokes make me want to reach out and touch them. I hope you enjoy "Souq" as much as I do!
