Garrett Clayton, the CEO of AmCap, a Houston-based mortgage bank, recently added a Longshore to his robust art collection.
In April, he
to paint an homage to Alec Baldwin's hard-charging character in "Glengarry Glen Ross," whose catchphrase was "Always be closing."
"The motivation for the piece is simple," says Clayton
Houston-based mortgage pooh-bah Garrett Clayton
and his wife, Katie, had seen some of Longshore's
work years ago and began following her on Instagram before commissioning this paean to Alec Baldwin's character in "Glengarry Glen Ross," which is emblazoned with brass balls.
"In my mind, the motivation for the piece is simple .?.?. it tells me to get off my ass, grow a pair and go make some money," says Clayton
, whose art collection includes works by Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein, Frederick Hart and Pablo Picasso.
