Candice Bohannon and Julio Reyes are award winning figurative artists. They are also married to each other. Candice’s paintings are intense, compelling, and pulsing with strength. Julio’s paintings have that double take quality that Edward Hopper talked about where you see something fleetingly and it conveys a lot. It’s like a still from a big expansive movie. Both Candice and Julio bring a level of integrity to their work that is very inspiring. We had a very long conversation.

- Laguna beach,
