Wyckoff Avenue Farmhouse - Wyckoff, NJ

 Into the final stages on this painting.

These 2 paintings have been selected to be included in the exhibition "The Art of Healing", a collaborative show between The Art School at Old Church in Demarest, NJ and Englewood Medical Center in Englewood, NJ.  The exhibition runs from June 12, 2014 until October 12, 2014. The paintings will be hung in the Englewood Hospital Medical Center.

EHMC's press release states, "EHMC recognizes the healing potential of art; the display of art will enhance EHMC's culture of compassion and humanism in medicine, contributing to the comfort and wellbeing of its patients and visitors."

I am honored to be included in this very special collaboration.

I have also been informed by The Art School that they would like to show more of my work in a one-person show sometime in the near future.  

One last note:  Pearl Paint has closed up shop for good.  I have been buying supplies at the NY and NJ locations for close to 25 years.  Very sad that they couldn't hold on and remain in business.  I went to the Paramus, NJ location for their last few days of operation and bought so many supplies, all at 50% off.  I was concerned that I may have spent way too much money, but when I got home on the last day of the sale, I got word that I received a new commission that paid for all of it.  Nice!

Chestnut Ridge Road House - Saddle River, NJ

Completed painting.

Oil on panel

5" x 7"

This little painting was the first commission from the Shop The Bergen Record site.

In honor of Sibling Day yesterday, my two art fans in front of some of my paintings circa 2004 in my old gallery in Ridgewood.

The Fritz Behnke museum in Paramus now officially owns 7 original paintings and 10 prints of mine.  After their electrician installs new track lighting in the room where these will be hung, I will shoot some pictures.  I will be giving lectures and teaching classes there as well in the coming months.  I will post more info about opening night and the unveiling of the paintings when I find out exact dates and times.

Lastly, there will be a "blood moon" this Monday night, 4/11 into Tuesday morning.  Can't wait to see it.

"Old Love" - Tybee Island, GA

Completed painting...

Oil on linen

10" x 15"

Some paintings are a struggle to finish for numerous reasons, other paintings are a joy from start to finish.  This one was the latter.  I wish this one did not have to end.  So much fun doing it.

Dune Road House - Ocean Beach II (Toms River), NJ

Completed painting.

Oil on linen.

12" x 16"

I have entered in to an agreement with a friend of mine who owns a T-shirt printing company to start using my paintings for reproduction on shirts.  When his website goes live in about a month, I shall post a link.  I have been receiving quite a few inquiries about ordering shirts, but all orders must go through the website.

I also have a major announcement that I am not at liberty to say much about until everything is finalized.  I will say that it is about representation in a prestigious NYC gallery.  When dates are set, I shall post more info here.

If this plays out the way we expect it should, I may have to put the home portrait business on hold for a little while.  That being said, if anyone would like a painting of their home before I take a hiatus, please email me at

Thanks in advance.
