Painting found a home!

My friend got the portrait of John Coltrane for herself a s a graduation present, and today it stands proudly above the piano! I'm very happy to see how my painting has found a good home where it's taken care of and loved. Another one of my paintings is in their kitchen. It's a live model painting from 2011, I supposed. It's painted in the classroom of Estonian academy of art. The kids of my friend are questioning, whether the man in the painting is actually sitting in a sauna, or in a cave, because the floor seems to be wet.
