Fantastic Podcast of Rockwell's Art

Telling Stories: Norman Rockwell from the Collections of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg.This is the address for a truly beautiful and entertaining podcast with fascinating visual and audio references. It was part of the Smithsonian Exhibition on Norman Rockwell.
  It's long but very inspiring.

Thanks to friends

My sister, Pat Slattery, Mary and Jeff Lock, and Roberta and Ed Breen were with me last evening at the Open House at Tootsies' in Wakefield.  Thank you, guys, for joining me and having the experience of sampling dozens of mini-cupcakes!!! along with some coffee and getting our pictures taken by people from the Chamber and the local newspaper.

Wakefield (MA) Paint Out--Fun and Successful

I certainly had a lucky day as I won the drawing of an opportunity to exhibit at the Wakefield Performing Arts Center!  What an honor to be able to do that!  

With perfect weather and about 30 artists participating, everyone had a wonderful day!  Above is the scene when everyone showed their work from noon to one.  I sold a painting that I had painted earlier in the week, and I bought Carol Potvin's painting.   It was a fun day, talking with many people who came by to watch me paint.  It was one of those great days to remember.

More events to come--tomorrow (Wednesday) is the Open House at Tootsie's where 5 of my paintings are on display, and Thursday is another event at Restaurant Molise.
