"Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul." - Edgar Allan Poe

Art News

  Driving out to Springfield on Saturday to drop off my painting and Christine Bodnar's wonderful pastel painting at Academic Artist Contemporary Show of Realism..... Yep... I'm very happy to say my painting Juicy was accepted in the show... I am now eligible for Full Membership...Hooray!!!
  Don and I will leave our weekend guests to their own devices for the morning and enjoy a leisurely drive and lunch. Just hope it's a nice day for a 
2 hour drive, so keep your fingers crossed:)

Other news: My painting Venice morning was accepted in the New England Watercolor 13th Biennial North American Open at the Attleboro Museum and two paintings were accepted in the Scituate Arts Annual Juried Show..."Dockside" and Sagrada Familia... both of which I've shown here before but 
"What the heck!"

This post is not about my art this time but about my son, Ian, and his friend Shaun O'Sullivan, Film Maker and President of O'Sullivan Pictures, an LA based production company. Their First Feature Film Release 2012 "Truth About Kerry" is now available on DVD on Amazon.

I'm so proud of Ian, who has been slogging away in LA for over 10 years in a highly competitive field. He was Assistant Producer on this film and did the artwork, posters, trailers and promos.  The film is definitely a work of dedication and the result of many long months of crafting along with his talented friends and co-workers... Brett Davidson VP/Creative Affairs, F.Boke VP/Creative Affairs and Kris Serle, whose song 
"I Would Give You It All" on the soundtrack is the winner of 
AAA Single of the Year at the Los Angeles Music Awards. 
My congratulations to all of you who worked so hard to get this film made.

As in all art endeavors, I'm helping with promotion so please check out the Trailer and re-post... the best promotion is word of mouth and this is a GREAT film..  The star is Stana Katic, the actress in "Castle" on ABC TV.
