  3. Dear Sgt. Damon,
    I first because acquainted with your story and paintings through a magazine article. I am glad that your love of art has helped to see you through a tough time. Your paintings remind me of the work of Edward Hopper, both in composition and in the way you handle light. I see this especially in “Whitman Coffee Shop,” “Brockton Cigar Store” and “Brockton Tripledecker.” My favorite paintings that I have seen in the gallery on your blog are “River Traffic” and “Tourists.” I first saw “Tourists” in the magazine, prior to visiting Provincetown, MA. I saw a restaurant there that reminded me so much of “Tourists” that I made my husband take for there for lunch. I hope that you will always pursue your painting because you are clearly a very talented man.
