Hello Mr. Hockney...

David Hockney actually looking at my iPad art. I'm still recovering.I had a truly remarkable day. The picture at right says it all. I met the great man himself at a small reception hosted by the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. The exhibition "Fresh Flowers" was absorbing and stunning. Sir David Hockney takes us into the process of creating digital art as his work develops before our eyes. This man's ingenuity completely validates iPad art.

 This was a unique moment when, at the urging of my daughter Maya Hirschman and her ROM colleagues, I was encouraged to show David Hockney my iPad art. He was kind enough to take me seriously.
