Artist Stephen Hankin, painting at The Frick, Pittsburgh. Although I interrupted his concentration, he graciously allowed me to photograph him at work. Said I could blog him, too. And here I was wondering what I’d photograph after the People at Work Show was over. If you live in Pittsburgh or plan to visit and would like to tour his studio (where he has 180 paintings on the walls) you can contact him stephenhankinart(at)gmail(dot)(com)The front of his card shows his studio with paintings on the walls.
Unexpected. Driving home after dinner out. Down a back alley parallel to on Butler Street.
As Steve said- you just never know when you’ll find a Van Gogh.

Laura’s 29th birthday. She says it is her FIRST 29th birthday. The family gathers on the front porch because most of them are nearby.
This year I didn’t run around and get in the photograph. Just wanted them. I’ll put it on the fridge. Look at it until we’re all together again. In the middle of winter I’ll glance at this August evening, celebrating Laura’s birthday and be glad I have the picture.
Not too many people really want their photo taken. Maybe a few. The family allows me to photograph them one more time.
They’re gracious and they love me and they know it’s what I like to do.
They probably wonder when I’ll get tired of wanting to photograph them but they don’t complain. Much. Photographing them while they ignore me is easier.
Of course, I want the shot where everyone is with me and looking pleasant on this occasion. Ha. Erika says to me, “Good luck with that!”
I get it the best I can.
Don’t want to drag it out too long, make it quick, Just SHOOT!
Thanks family. Matthew is the one who said to his friends at his college graduation ” This is what my mom does. It’s annoying now, but later you’re glad.”

And Maura and Murphy pose for Mark. Caught them from the side as he got them to look at his phone.
