Centro Modern Furnishings Todd Lannom and Brian Clore are shown in front of another of Adams’ paintings. The artist was at the opening but was surrounded by fans so I was not able to get his photograph.

    Just wanted to say great job on your blog, always enjoy it.
    Did want to let you know that a name on the photo credit for Atrium isn’t correct—sorry, but the young woman is Carolyn Stern, not Carol. Thnx!

      Thanks for the comment Robin. Carolyn Stern goes by Carol at Atrium because there would be two women named Carolyn otherwise. Carolyn Miles is the proprietor. Hope this helps.
