On April 24, 2013, I had the privilege of giving the former US Ambassador to Armenia, John M. Evans, a tour of my artwork. He was very engaging and thoughtful in his understanding of this period in Armenian history. He was especially pleased to find out that the "Dear John" painting was done in his honor.  The two panel painting (48 x 48 in each panel) is a tribute to the former US Ambassador to Armenia, John M. Evans.  It is acrylic-based mixed media that includes a collage of a newspaper article regarding the events behind his 2006 dismissal after he used the word "genocide" within the context of Turko-Armenian history.   The Gallery contains several more photographs of the tour.
