It's been a while since I've painted anything new. The stress and hectic undertaking of opening a new business has kept me away from my easel these past few months. In these times, inspiration is often far off and elusive as my mind is preoccupied with other things. This past weekend however, I happened to catch a news story on television which spotlighted the efforts of thousands of volunteers and charitable patriots who had endeavored to decorate the headstones of our nation's fallen heroes at several National Cemeteries across the country. The task was headed up by 'Wreaths Across America', which every year gathers hundreds of thousands of donated Christmas wreaths from benefactors from all over the nation and world. Seeing this display of goodwill warmed my heart and was indeed the sorely needed spark to ignite that burning flame of inspiration deep in my soul. Perhaps I can use this image as next year's Christmas card design

So as you know, I've been offline for awhile. The reason being is that I've had to come up with a sizable inventory to display in my wife and I's new 'brick and mortar' art gallery called, True Grit Art Gallery, located in the center of our hometown of Middleboro, MA. I've got roughly 14 of my own paintings hung as well as paintings, photography, and pottery from over 16 local, New England, artists. A couple of my fellow artists here are veterans as well. In any case, True Grit Art Gallery is a Veteran Owned business and it would do you well to shop there, LOL! But seriously, I've greatly appreciated all the business my patrons have given me over the past years and I want you to know you're helping this disabled vet to live his dream as an artist.

Our gallery Grand Opening was a big success. About 200 turned out to attend through the night. If you're ever in town, please stop by to visit us. We're located at 38 Center St, Middleboro, MA, 02346, 774-419-4160,
