my friend had a show of his very special paintings of unknown russians who were executed in russia. he did them from the mug shots the jailers took of them each just before they were shot. it was near hollywood and vine; right in the center of hollywood.

many of his talented friends recited poetry and there were hot and cold hors d'oeuvres and cold vodka. ethnic violin music made the whole event very festive.

i would like to show you a sample of zander berkeley's deep portraits but i don't have permission. sorry …
