Vladimir Putin Burgers

This last weekend I was on the Cape and the time was right to make burgers, thus a new hamburger head... so we have Vladimir Putin.

Cold and Windy Plein Air, Frankenframes, and Extra Wall Space

The art gallery at Patriot Place has extra wall space this weekend, being minus quests artists, so I took the opportunity to hang these new pieces in their new frames. These are some of my most recent from a Provincetown series. The bottom one is a plein air event on a cold and windy day with some fellow artists. I think the weather really made me paint with a purpose trying to capture the feeling of the day.

These are my favorite frames to date I bought from Frankenframes. They're black floaters with a little silver on the front.

Hamburger Heads (Elvis) in Fine Art America

See my latest addition from my Hamburger Head series in Fine Art America. Elvis returns as a meat head — or was he always a meat head. Anyway, he'll always be the King!

Summer Love

I had a good time at the Studio and Gallery at Patriot Place this last weekend talking to customers and guest artists. I also painted this new addition to my Dunes Series—just wanted to share it. I'm painting larger again and like how my direction looks at a bigger size. I favor this overhead view, without the horizon line, today at least, because it makes for a more interesting composition. It's more expressive.

Doolittle Art Auction

An art auction to benefit Foxboro's, MA, non-profit nursing home, the Doolittle Home, was held at the Foxboro Country Club March 15 and was a big success. I was happy I donated a painting for this event. Members and friends of the Foxboro Art Association donated over 40 pieces. This is my painting, from my dune series, on the block.

El Diablo made me do it!

I just wanted to share my latest drawing inspired by a Halloween costume I wore years ago.

Broadway Joe

I had a nice Super Bowl weekend working at the Artist's Studio and Gallery at Patriot Place. It was also productive 'cause I worked on this painting—another one for the Cape Dune series. Yes, it was quiet at Patriot Place, where Gillette Stadium is, at the home of the New England Patriots.  I did get home in time to see Seattle clobber the Broncs. The highlight of the game might have been Broadway Joe in his fur coat.

It's not all painting, having to mind the store, with people browsing and sometimes purchasing this or that and testing my money math skills. I am happy to say someone bought one of my colored pencil drawings, "Martini Man", as a Valentine present for their husband.

Painting Demo for the Foxboro Art Association

My painting demo for the Foxboro Art Association was a success. Everything went smoothly–my easel didn't collapse during the demo. I did a painting from my Provincetown Dunes series. I've been painting in acrylics lately and there was a lot of interest in the medium. I'm doing another demo for the Norwood Art Association in May, looking foreword to it.
