About last night

The reception for my show was last night, and it was fun. I have a love-hate relationship with these kinds of things, but this one went very well. And I'm relieved it's now officially yesterday. The show runs for another month, and it seems to have already generated a nice little buzz around campus. People have been very kind from all quarters: friends, colleagues, acquaintances, and strangers. I suppose I really should try to do these sorts of things more often. You know, get the work out of the studio. He said, tongue in cheek. Soon will post pics of the installation and maybe even video. Stay tuned, sportsrockers, as my brother would say.

Happy birthday to me

Recently celebrated a birthday. I have entered what I'll refer to as my "Tom Seaver" year.

Some news for the New Year:

We had a great trip to Ohio for the holidays. Some highlights to come.

I have a little show coming up at LIU that will run from January 20 to the end of February. It will be small to easel sized, monochromatic, b movie paintings, mounted in the Resnick gallery showcases.

Our son starts kindergarten in the fall.

Saw a bunch of old old friends in Toledo. High school football teammates, whom I've missed more than I realized. Highlights of that to come, too. A resolution would be to keep in better touch with the old gang.

Got a flip camera for Christmas, very cool. And a few more volumes of Looney Tunes on dvd. also cool.
