  1. Dan the Man!! I’ve known Dan since the 80’s…haven’t seen him in quite a while…but I never knew he had this great artistic side! He used to give me pointers when I had to create our own ads for the Regency Mall Cinema. He’s a great guy. I will try to get down there to see his artwork tonight.

  2. Well, I know this isn’t Facebook (which I don’t have) or email/text, but this is the only way I might be able to contact Dan! I’m sorry, Dan, but I didn’t realize we had had something else planned for tonight. I honestly, really wanted to see your paintings! I told one of my patients today about your show and she Googled you! It showed a bunch of your awesome paintings! I am greatly impressed! I hope y’all have a ton of people come tonight. I’m proud of you, Dan.
