Coming Soon: "The Race" and "Seeing the Light," a view of "Montauk Point Lighthouse" from New London, CT. Have ya seen it? does anyone out there know how to obtain an image of Montauk Point Light, as you would see it, coming from New London, CT? I've tried googling to get the right viewpoint, to no avail... it's for my "Mural of Long Island Sound." It is a beautiful area and I've enjoyed viewing it, of a rainy Saturday afternoon. Thanx! http://www.sites.google.com/site/makingartaffordabletothepublic/

New London, CT...it's a...beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day in the neighborhood; would you be mine? could you be mine? it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a beauty, would you be mine? could you be mine? Well, whatta you expect? It's November! Smooth music beckons at the ECSO Saturday night. Need help editing my new website, http://sites.google.com/site/makingartaffordabletothepublic/ soon! Coming next: "The Race" (3). Wow, I didn't realize how BIG the High Speed Ferry is! Soon to follow: "Seeing the Light" (Montauk Point) (4); and "Aplomb" (that is actually Plum Island out there; just off of Orient Point) (5); and "On the Rocks" (6). Then, "Seagulls All Around" (now, I get the picture -- it is easy to see that Little Gull and Great Gull Islands lie just past Cormorant Island) (7). Averaging just two paintings per month, I can see that I could be done with my "Mural of Long Island Sound" in seven panels around the first week of January 2010. I should be able to churn out just a few more beach scenes in time for my Midwinter Artist Reception on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2010 at 1pm. All Friends & Family Welcome.

'YOU'RE AN ARTIST. You see things differently," my best friend Paula said one afternoon at Ocean Beach, before the boardwalk renovations were complete. I made a comment on the intersecting lines of the boardwalk as it was undergoing construction. And here is the moment where her trusty advice was given. "You're an artist." I guess she is right. My paintings probably won't make a million dollars at Sotheby's Auction, posthumously. We may also never find out what's really going on at The Residence. But I've started to carve out an existence for myself in this, the biggest little town, New London, Connecticut. I'm happy with what I do. Striving for a presence in the community. Trying to Save Ocean Beach! (portion of all proceeds...)OK. So my long ago written novel, "Fool's Gold" may never sell. Might not even get published. I didn't fare well in the Big Apple for too long. "I wonder what's going on. I'd really love to know!" "Some political scandal," Debbie replied cryptically. "It's definitely more than what we think." (I've got to see this movie. I've got to see it; I've got to see it. Are we going? We're going; aren't we? If we don't go; I'm going to be mad!!!... * * * :)...
DIDJA SEE IT? Sunday, November 8, 2009 New London, CT. Today I would like to share the "spotlight" with my sister Kim. Check out The Day on 11/8/09. http://www.theday.com/article/20091108/NWS08/311089983 Yeah, that is my little sister in the Big City. My stay was short-winded, but I hope to get a novel about life in NYC in the 80s published someday (even on-line). Admittedly, I don't care that much for money or things. I just want to be famous! Also, did you "see" the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra's October 17 concert, broadcast on 94.5 Fine Arts Radio Sunday afternoon at 3:00? I hope you did! Wasn't it awesome? If you enjoyed this beautiful music with its many textures, layers and moods as much as I did, go see the ECSO on Saturday, November 14. Right here in downtown New London, live at The Garde Theater. Piano Virtuoso, Peter Serkin, 8pm. Tix $28-$52. Call 860-443-2876 or go to: http://www.gardearts.org/ Sponsored by The City of New London, the Towns of Groton and Waterford and Bank of America. Beverages served at intermission. (There's enough to go around!) :)
