Are you wondering who photographs the paintings on this website?

Star San Francisco kid Christian Mushenko, that's who!

His dealer in New York loves his work, and I do too. Christian's big earner is in ads, big ads, and we might have a show together sometime soon.

We both love the ocean, we dig the sea, and his kids even like his photographs of the moody sea.
