Winter quiet

Here are a couple images of lantern flowers resting in afternoon filtered sunlight that caught my attention. -- BL

steamrolling into October

It has been a while since my last entry. I feel like a Dr. Seuss character often, juggling time to search for a new full time job, working in my new studio in Long Island City, TRYING to get in some motorcycling on my new ride before the SNOW falls.

Now, I am working at a couple galleries in NYC, helping various artists with their shows, being on the Board of Directors at the Port Washington Art Guild,
and the Board of Directors at the Port Washington Library Art Advisory Committee.

I also have a photograph in the Elderfields Art gallery in Port Washington now, a juried show and I have a large painting in the Fabir Barren National Color Award Show in Stamford Connecticut. (Happy to have work in both shows)

In November I will also be part of a group show at the College Library on the NY tech campus in Old Brookville, N.Y.

Thanks for checking in with me, I will try and make more entries and post more of my work!
Enjoy! -- BL

I'd like to thank the many terrific people who came by and checked out my studio during the recent Open Studio weekend. So good to see some old friends, unexpectedly... and make some new ones.

Passed out many business cards, had many cool discussions about my work and the time flew by! Hope that everyone enjoyed themselves and had some food and drink while visiting and in the Fall there will be another one!

So, if you were unable to attend this time, stay tuned, and check in with my blog later!
All the best to all fellow art lovers out there, and... catch you later. -- BL

Thanks for checking in to my blog! I realize that I have been somewhat, inconsistant with my entries. I have been very involved with creating a new studio space in Long Island City, N.Y. I am part of an upcoming OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND, where anyone can stop in and view my new space, recent work, meet me, ask questions, purchase work, or just come in and enjoy viewing my work! There will be about 15 additional artists opening their studios also on the same floor!
May 30th, and May 31st (Saturday and Sunday) from 1-6 PM will be the open studios, at....PAINT CAN STUDIOS, 10-10 44th Avenue, 3rd Floor
Long Island City, N.Y. 11101
Hope to see you!

My brother e-mailed me last Saturday with a guest pass for the New York City Comic Convention at the Javits Center. Meeting him at the VIP entrance we went to the Mirage
Studio Tables and joined about seven very talanted cartoonists.

Wow! What a wild scene!

Thousands of comic enthusiasts, artists, vendors, costumed super heroes, and my brother
and his fellow artists signed t-shirts, comic books, golf bags, arms, books, posters,and were drawing... constantly! Very cool to see the fans supporting TMNT twenty five years later! -- BL

Walking in Northampton, Mass. this cold afternoon, I stopped to catch these three images that got my attention. The elements of New England in this waterfall scene, a skin-like pattern emerges from ice, and a rock composition, always intriguing. -- BL
