John and I travelled to California this week to look at the shops and art and make contacts in the art world in Southern California. We had a great time. I loved talking to the shop owners and other artists and eating at great food places with John.
Here is a wonderful artist I met today while he was painting in his little booth at the Ferry Building Marketplace. His name is Frank Shu Tang Dong, and he has been painting for 50 years. Some of his work is in museums now.
His website is frankshutangdong.com
What a sweet man and there is such a good feeling about him. His art is quite varied and at least 6 or 7 paintings really caught my eye, but I only bought two!
