… to whore products (save for, ahem, my books). But I hired a painter to do a portrait of my wife and daughter, and he produced what I thought was absolutely amazing work. (the photo I gave him was cruddy and actually taken through a screen window) His name is Greg Kuppinger, and we met him in Buffalo. Is just a low-key guy trying to make it in a tough biz, and I really, really want him to succeed. Hence, here is his website. A real gem of a guy/artist.
