One day I discovered this painting, "White Roses" by my great grand uncle, Philip Leslie Hale at the National Arts Club in NYC.

Then I found out my uncle was a member of the club, friends with Monet and
painted with him in Giverny... Sotheby's sells my uncle's paintings and
I hope to paint in Monet's garden one of these days too.

I've also been invited to do a show at
The National Arts Club and fill the Grand Gallery with my 6' x 9' abstract florals....which I'm currently working on in my studio basement.
