What's New for 2016?

Commission Work

Dillon has recently been immersed with his commission works. Reuniting with a previous admirer and collector from his Diana Paul days, he was asked to paint a new piece from their travels. Hearing about their travels and memories, Dillon couldn't pass on this opportunity and took the project on wholeheartedly.

So far the piece has unraveled beautifully. About two-thirds the way there, Dillon still has a lot to think about while finishing up this piece. But, you can see what an amazing piece this has become. Some of you may be familiar with this location, it's of Saint-Émilion in France. The place is known for it's wine and it's unique Romanesque churches and ruins that run through the narrow streets of the commune.
