Lafayette Avenue House - Wyckoff, NJ

2nd stage of underpainting in progress.

Congratulations to my son Mark for passing his road test today for his NJ driver's license!!!  Happy Birthday, kid!!!  Seems like just yesterday that I took this picture at Seaside Heights of the boys.

The last picture is what 5 Pointz looks like as of last week.  I should have done a painting of it before this happened.

Lastly, I have new website.  If you have time, take a look.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

University Avenue House - Chatham, NJ

Completed painting.

oil on linen

8" x 10"

Had a nice ceremony last week at the Bergen County Administration building.  My paintings looked great hanging, and it was very nice to have County Executives saying how much they admired my work and how important they thought the paintings were as far as historical documentation, as well as pieces of fine art.  Needless to say, I will be participating in the Art In The Park show again next year and every year.

Cedar Place House - Wayne, NJ

First stage of underpainting complete.

There is a very nice little article about me in today's Villadom Times newspaper.  I have been written about in various newspapers and magazines over the years, and never had anything written about me in this particular paper, so I'm pretty pleased with this nice piece.  Check out pages 4 and 25.

Lastly, I was able to ride the bike in the city for the Village Halloween parade this past Thursday.  Always an incredible time riding in the greatest city in the world during this crazy event!

The last image is a short video of the Empire State Building taken that night.  I hope it opens when you click on it.  It is well worth seeing. The light show was absolutely incredible.
