I just got an email from an aide to the U.S. ambassador to Nigeria, Terence McCulley, of him standing in front of my painting at his residence in Abuja. I have three paintings there as part of the State Departments "Art in Embassies" program. Sort of a strange arrangement but kind of cool too. You submit your work to the program and ambassadors get to look through the submissions for things they'd like to display during their tenure. Apparently Mr. McCulley is from Oregon.

At least I thought so. There was a nice turn out as well. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures. Dumb. Oh well. If you want to see how it all looks hanging on the walls I guess you'll just have to go down there. Or not. I do realize not everyone lives in Portland. Maybe I'll go down and take a few pictures before the month is over. Stay tuned.
