I met Bruce in the 1990’s at my original David Leonardis Gallery at 1352 N. Paulina St. It was a different time and place in the world, and the Chicago Art Scene. Bruce’s paintings have a master works feel to them. They’re quite large and framed beautifully with the accent color in the frame, catching the colors in the paintings. I’ve enjoyed having these paintings for years now, but if they’re going to a good home, my art dealer arm could get twisted into letting you acquire them.David Leonardis August 23, 2019
