A little LIC in Youngstown, Ohio

The Butler Institute's 73rd National Midyear Show

"LIC Courthouse Fountain
Oil on canvas
10 x 10 inches

This painting of the Beaux Arts Long Island City courthouse has been acccepted into the Butler Institute of American Art's annual. Always nice to have a work accepted into this show. Have several group shows coming up this Fall and 2 interesting exhibits in 2010 lined up. When the skies are gray and the rain pours down, I try to take care of the business of art stuff and have been getting some results.

Off-topic, I was saddened to hear of Michael Jackson's sudden death. When I found my studio in 1980, there were 4 other artists sharing the space. I suggested we call ourselves The Jackson Five since our space was on Jackson Avenue, but alas, the name was already taken. Today I'll put my Motown 40 Forever CD on the player while I work - listen to "I'll Be There" and reflect on the music and the man.
