The Summer of '08

"One must always be prepared for riotous and endless waves of transformation". This quote, from the book, "Eat, Pray, Love" pretty much describes the whirlwind of activity this summer!
My friends Robin (from the Laguna College of Art & Design) and Heidi a fellow designer from my publishing days) were in town. We caught a Red Sox game, cruised to Nantucket and toured from Boston to Provincetown. All in one week!
Speaking of the
Cape, Mercedes Hall gave a dynamic performance at the Wequasett Inn. She's an award winning singer who's son happens to be Anthony Michael Hall of Breakfast Club and more recently Batman fame. I've known Mercedes for a couple of years and she's as beautiful as she is talented. Inspired by her performance I created several paintings of her on stage.
And lastly,
I took part in a group show the "Art of Dining" on August 23rd at Wynne Falconer Gallery in Chatham. Kenny & Allison (the owners) invited me to their annual "Tailight Party" - a farewell to the hoards of visitors that inhabit the Cape in July & August. It marks a return to the peace and tranquility of summers end.
