The 9th Street Bridge


I think this is the fifth version I've done of this view in Ocean City, NJ. The orange columns behind the bridge are the NEW bridge that's being built. I don't bemoan the loss of the old bridge really. I understand why they need to replace it. I will surely miss it though, one reason perhaps that I keep doing these paintings. ..aside from the fact that I have a really good vantage point for early morning light. The bridge is/has always been a part of my life. I remember eating at Hogates(in 1964), the long gone restaurant that used to be right there as you came onto the island. I almost wish I had kept all the previous paintings. Ocean City visitors and residents are eager to buy up images of the beloved old draw bridge, so yes I'm sure this one will sell as well come August. ...progress. 8x10

What Happened to June??


Several things, two new part time jobs, three commissions that I couldn't post to the general public,a Bad Art Fair weekend in Long Beach Island. Other than that life is good, one of my new jobs required two weeks of training so that was what really ate up my time. I'm not returning to the floral business, I don't want to return to living with back pain!! Anyway Happy Fathers Day...here is my Dad's card...he loves snapping turtles!! 7x5. pen and ink over graphite.
