I was #1 (picture to prove it!) Dave and I went for a coffee while we waited for the others to arrive. (Hes a real trooper.)
Then we hurried home to watch the golf.

Mike Wright Gallery
1412 Wazee, Denver, CO 80202
Some of the most outstanding pieces!
Ron Hicks figurative painting on the left painted over by Kacena
and Rons painting on Kacenas abstract on the right!
(remnants of figures can be seen in both )
You can see already how representational painters appreciate the abstract and
can break out and paint abstracts! Truly fascinating. Thats our friend Patrice Dello Russo.
Mikael Olsons street scene painted over by Doug Kacena was really striking!
And you know I would be drawn to the colour in this painting! Doug Kacenas Urban D1
painted over by Mikael Olson. Beautiful Mikael! (Another of our artists.)
So get on over and see ALL of these amazing works! Open over the holidays!
