Creative Capital is an organization I support, which each provides dozens of artists with grants and entrepreneurial guidance.  At a benefit event, 2001 grantee Franco Mondini-Ruiz was painting portraits of attendees, so I was delighted to commission this original work!  (Also flattered he entitled it “Man with a Brilliant Background”, which was not at all my idea.)
