Middlesex County Museum Show - Piscataway, NJ



















My paintings will be installed tomorrow for this show.  I was able to see how it is coming along today, and it looks absolutely fantastic so far.  When everything is hung and installed, it will be a show not to be missed.  This is the first major exhibition about NJ diners in the history of the state, and I am very proud and excited to be a part of it.

Opening reception is Sunday, April 12th, 2:30 PM.  
Cornelius Low House/ Middlesex County Museum.
1225 River Road, Piscataway, NJ.

Hope to see some of you there!

Ed's Garage #2 - Wyckoff, NJ




Completed painting.

Oil on linen.

14" x 22"

This is the 6th painting I have done for this collector, with #'s 7 and 8 coming up next.  His was the very first commissioned home painting I did almost 3 years ago, and I have sold every painting I have completed since that one.

Ed, thanks so much for giving me that initial commission, and all the other ones we have done and will do together.  I appreciate your enthusiasm about me and my work!

My painting of this place is currently on view at Lambert Castle until March 29.  It will then go to the Middlesex County Museum from April 12 until June 26, 2016.



My painting of  the neon sign at Rutt's Hut has been made into a faux billboard in Times Square by someone very good with Photoshop.

Ed's Garage #2- Wyckoff, NJ



First stage of underpainting complete.

I found some interesting photos of waves that are so close to being frozen that they look like slush on Nantucket.  I have never seen anything like this before.  http://www.staywildmagazine.com/

Ed's Garage #2 - Wyckoff, NJ

 First stage of underpainting underway.
 First painting of Ed's garage framed and hanging.

 Paintings in Gate House Gallery, Wyckoff.

 Lance and Maria's great room with painting.
Little blurb about my Lambert Castle show in today's Bergen Record.

I had a small mention in the NY Times about this show in the Sunday edition for the past couple of weeks as well.  This past Monday, my son Jamie was in the Record for scoring his first Varsity goal.  It was a nice feeling seeing my piece in the Sunday Times, then seeing Jamie's mention the next day in the Record.

 I was also in some of the local papers, mentioning that the Lambert museum opening is 1/14/15 from 7-9 PM.  There is a reception the next night at Englewood Medical Center for the "Art Of Healing" show that I am in as well, from 5:30 - 7 PM.  Both receptions are open to the public.

Nice way to start off 2015.  Happy New Year to everyone!
