San Francisco, United States - October 2014  
Looking With Steven J. Levin
At "The Exhibition", "The Sailboat" & "After The Party", three amazing oil paintings by himself at John Pence Gallery. Steven has lots of beautiful paintings, but these three made me smile, as they were kind of similar to my project.

Steven J. Levin (b. 1964) was classically trained in fine art painting in Minnesota. He has been featured in prestigious group shows in San Francisco, New York, London, and Chicago, as well as the Arnot Art Museum's "Re-Presenting Representation VI" exhibition. He is emerging as a pivotal player in the resurgence of the American Realist Movement and is widely admired by his fellow artists. In recent years, Levin has won numerous awards and prizes in nationwide competitions, including the American Society of Portrait Artists, the Allied Artists of America, The Portrait Institute, American Artist Magazine, Artist's Magazine, the Oil Painters of America and the American Artists Professional League. These are awards given to artists by their peers and attest to his high standing among professional painters.
