Fast forward… I stopped by his house about a year or so ago to deliver another painting to him. Once we hung his new painting in just the right place, I took a moment and walked into another room that was home to his commissioned piece. It was an intense experience, just short of misty-eyed, but definitely the Michael Landon level of ‘super-proud’ he would bust out at the end of an episode. The piece was really good, the story was authentic, the commission experiment worked beautifully.
