I've been reluctant to share my originals on EB the past few years... But I'll share this major acquisition. This painting was actually created in 2011, exhibited at Copro Gallery in Dec. 2012, at The National Arts Club in NYC in January 2013, then finally at a group show at Vered Gallery in the summer of 2013. I finished paying it off in February of this year.

Adam Miller - A Gentle Breeze (c. 2011)
36" x 48", oil on canvas

Here's a video of Adam Miller discussing the painting with artist Martin Wittfooth during the opening reception of the "Nocturnes" show at National Arts Club, NYC a couple years ago.

Definitely bought a lot less this year but knocked off some huge ISOs! Also, pardon the last two pictures, I broke my elbow and its rather dark out so one handed iPad pictures didn't work out so well.

1.) :drool: is about all I can say for this one
Image

2.) I love this guy, me and my Grandmother both love our westerns so bonus sentimental value. Also :drool:
Image

3.) Kind of noticing a trend. Love the trilogy and am super stoked to see all the Hobbits in their 70mm glory tomorrow.
Image

4.) You talkin' to me?
Image

5.) Next in the framing line are these two beauties. I count them as a set :wink:
ImageImage

Thanks to everyone who helped me acquire these beauties. :clap:
