It’s come to that moment when I can talk about Ian’s new found “fame.”
A few weeks ago Jay Thomas came into the Ian Russell Gallery and got to see the paintings first hand. See, Jay was dining at the Firehouse Restaurant and the owner, Cheryl, brought him over to see Ian’s paintings. Things really moved quickly from there.
Last week Ian boxed up all of the paintings and shipped them off to New York, NY. Since that moment he’s been worried about how things would go……
This morning things went pretty well on the Howard Stern show. Overall the paintings were greeted with positive remarks. Apparently one of the staff members got picked on due to Ian’s depiction of him. I don’t know the whole story, I’m not a Sirrius listener, I’m an XM guy. 🙂
So, there you have it. The cat is now out of the bag. Ian is getting his 15 minutes as we speak. Even better, he’s getting an interview on Sirrius today. We’re keeping the phone lines clear here at the gallery so he can do the interview!
