After the longest break in my blog’s history, I now write to say that there have been a slough of wonderful events, one after the other.
But first- happy anniversary, wife. Nine years, tomorrow. Three continents, one desert, two oceans, one mountain, a salt plain, and now three boys. What an adventure.
What’s more, tomorrow on WNBC2 News, this Wednesday the 29th, between seven and eight p.m., I will be interviewed live, in a five minute special. The prime time news program is called New York Nightly with anchorman Chuck Scarborough, on NBC’s 24/7 news station, Cozi. The special is about the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibition, and how it helped launch my career. During the interview, they will be featuring some images of my paintings. This is a great chance for me to feature my work, and a great chance to talk about how the outdoor venue that began with Jackson Pollock went on to forge the careers of great realist painters such as David Leffel.
I had a great show this past weekend, at the Washington Square Outdoor Exhibition. Notwithstanding the wind and rain on the first day, there were a few great sales, and many great connections with people from all over the world who walk the streets of New York City. I will be exhibiting next weekend as well, so feel free to come out and meet me in my booth on the sidewalk, above Washington Square. I’m on the west side of University Avenue, between 9th and 10th.
