"See You Soon"

"See You Soon" 36 x 18 oil on canvas experimenting with overglazes to represent a feeling of time and the movement of light.  I painted this outside in the town of Oyster Bay, Long Island, NY, by memory, as a guest artist for Think Long Island First right before hurricane Sandy (by the way, which reminds me, a new movie called Identity Thief, starring Jason Bateman as Sandy, is coming out soon and it looks hilarious - unlike the hurricane, of course).  The photo of me was taken in the early 90's at the Rose Cafe' in Venice Beach, CA.  I did not paint the rose behind me.  I really miss California and look forward to painting the waves of the West Coast soon and to meeting up with some old friends there.
