Morgan Opening

May 3, 2008

Tonight is the opening for my dad's show in New Orleans at the Arthur Roger Gallery. If you are in New Orleans between May3rd and May 28th, please stop in and take a look. We had all been planning and hoping to be there tonight but instead we are all here together in Baltimore. Arthur called my dad earlier tonight and he had a big smile on his face while getting an update on the show.The NY skyline piece pictured here (finished in above photo, in process below) was done this past summer at the Liberty State Park in New Jersey. Makes me happy to look at these particular photos because that was such an exciting time for him and makes me hope that when I am in my 70s I will have half as much energy, drive, and passion as he does. My dad is still in the ICU, still on the ventilator but still fairly stable and still working hard on getting out of the hospital and back to Louisiana. We are all very focused on that goal. As one of the cards on his bulletin boards says:

"The Landscape Misses Your Presence. Get Well Soon"

Glad you are all together. Your father's painting are breathtaking and I have only had the pleasure of viewing them on-line. I too hope for his quick return to the land and scenery that he calls home.

I would love to see this piece in person since I LOVE NYC. I hope your Dad will be making a speedy recovery. We miss you.

Please give Elemore a big hug for me! Tell him he must recover quickly! Our weather is perfect right now & he needs to be out in the marshes, painting away.
