Dwayne Carter - Bad Habbits
oil on masonite - 36 x 31 inches

I've lusted after this lovely painting by my friend Dwayne Carter ever since he first painted it. I moved it after photographing it for this page, but it's been in my direct line of sight as I sit here at my computer for most of the last decade. It's called Bad Habits, (the cigarettes). I had it on long-term loan for several years, then I stored it for him for awhile. Finally, he sold it to me outright. Now I'm looking for some place in my house where more people will be able to enjoy it.

While I'm at it, here is a small self-portrait of Dwayne that I liked the first time I saw it, but he never really did. Still, it was a struggle to wrest it from him.
