“You should see what I see.”

Onward, Upward…and Outward.

Onward, Upward…and Outward.

I recently had the extreme pleasure in attending my ex-partner’s retirement party in Brooklyn. My jaw still hurts from all the laughing. Sitting across the table from former bosses and colleagues, reminiscing about days gone by, good times and not so good times. Mostly good times. But I could not help but look at the somewhat matured faces and expanding waistlines and think of those somber and sobering times after September 11th. Long after the public started to get back on track of their daily pre-911 routines the men and women at this dinner trudged on, and are STILL trudging on in keeping us safe.
This is a series of four pictures of the Freedom Tower and it is dedicated to all the men and women who tirelessly continue to keep us safe.
And Good Luck Tony. You ever hear of a salad?! (I should talk!)

Just A Thought.

A Sucker For A Pink Ribbon

A Sucker For A Pink Ribbon

A little background on the Pink Ribbon picture. It was inspired and created back in 2008 when my wife, Magee was battling breast cancer. I used to break her chops because whenever she shopped, if there was an item with a pink ribbon on it she would buy it. No matter what it was. Motor oil, cheese, chewing gum, whatever. I would always say that she was a sucker for a pink ribbon. Anyway, when I completed this picture it only seemed right that I should name it “Sucker For A Pink Ribbon”.
On it goes and Magee found a lovely group of women at a local charity called Hewlett House, an advocate group for people battling all types of cancer. We decided that I would donate a print and that proceeds from the sales of any additional prints would go directly to them. I subsequently sold a few.
When it came time for the actual presentation to the president of Hewlett House, Geri Barrish (a three time cancer survivor and a wonderful woman) I had thought that the original title might be a bit offensive to some potential donators so I shortened it to “Pink Ribbon”. Ms. Barrish genuinely liked the picture, which hangs nicely in the 300 year old Hewlett House, but actually commented that the title lacked something. She, being the master fundraiser, came up with the idea of a renaming contest. So it went, at a local grammar school there was a contest which was won by a sweet little 3rd grade girl who came up with the name “Beads Of Love”.
I like it and every following print became Beads Of Love but it will always be Sucker For A Pink Ribbon to me.
