         Just returned from a drive up into the Boston area... on the road to deliver two of my large paintings, purchased at my recent show in Chelsea by a wonderful couple. It was very nice to be invited into the home and see these people again and also to learn where the pieces will be hung!  (They have found a great home!)

         Wandering north of the city I found the quaint town of Concord, had a nice lunch, and even got to photograph some very cool old headstones in an old cemetary.  Did the trip up and back in one day and was very happy that I had offered to deliver the work to them in person. Super people.

         (Here are the two paintings which now live in Massachusetts!)

Enjoy the holiday season! -BL-

Show is over!

I'd like to take a moment to thank the many wonderful people who came to NOHO Gallery during my show: the folks from Australia, the ladies from Canada, the groups of art students, the couple from California, the man from Paris, the children who sketched in my sign-in book, my friends, fellow artists, the cool Japanese documentary film crew who filmed my entire show, the many people who purchased my handmade cards, and the fine couple who purchased two of my large paintings for their home. I appreciated all of the interesting conversations, questions and comments that I was happy to hear and engage in discussions about.) 


Here are more images from the show. -- BL

Last week!

        Well... this will be the final week of my show in Clelsea!  To all who attended and shared comments and thoughts and ideas with me during my show... thank you!  It has been a very fast show because of my  delayed opening.  An incredible storm caused havoc all over the city, my best wishes to all for a complete recovery.

        I will be at the gallery Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and the final day, Saturday the 24th! Hope
to see and talk with many more people! Come, enjoy the show!

        I will NOT be in the gallery on Thursday, as it is Thanksgiving!  HAPPY THANKSGIVING
TO ALL... we have much to be thankful for! Enjoy each other.

My show in Chelsea

First, I would like to thank all of the brave souls who ventured into the city this past Saturday to check out my show and join us for what proved to be a successful opening reception!  Many people showed up and enjoyed the show and also had the chance to visit additional galleries on the same floor also having receptions at the same time! Great to see and talk with old and new friends! Show runs through November until the 24th! Stop by!

Below is a selection of pieces in the show. -BL-

          WOW! WHAT A STORM! KNOCKED OUT OUR POWER ON MONDAY AND WE DID NOT GET IT RESTORED UNTIL LATE FRIDAY!  NO electricity, heat, internet, cell service for FIVE days! Man, what you take for granted!

           ALL of Port Washington and MOST of Nassau County was in the dark ALL that time! Huge trees down all over, on power lines, lawns, crushing fences, uprooted oaks, branches everywhere. We finally found ONE bagel store open in town running off a generator... took most of an hour in a LONG line to get some hot coffee and a bagel!

          We had cold nights, a lot of candlelit card games, and reading books by cool flashlights given to us in old Christmas stockings from a very cool dude!  Thanks!  Man, the times when it is a great asset to maintain a sense of HUMOR!

          AND... my show was to open the day AFTER the storm in the city... needless to say the ENTIRE week was a wash... NO power in downtown NYC... I did take a train in to NYC to check on my show... power had just come back to our building (Saturday) and I was able to put finishing touches on my show... AFTER hiking up four flights of stairs! (NO elevator service!)

          For those reading my blog... I will open my show this coming Tuesday, the 6th! AND my reception will be November 10th, from 3 to 6pm!  If you are able to come, DO check out the show, and joIn us at the reception... the show runs through until November 24th!

          Wow! What an omen for a show!

           Stay well.
