Multiple Meanings

I’m finishing a new small painting that is packed with emotion. I’m sure I will be asked, more than once ūüôā — “What does it mean?”

Does it matter?

I know what this painting means to me. In truth, it has multiple meanings — but I don’t think they¬†should matter to the viewer.

What do you see in this painting? How does it make you feel. That’s what matters!

Queen City Beer – New Painting with a Vintage Feel

Someone at the Allentown Art Festival asked me why Buffalo is called the Queen City. I had to admit that I had no idea — so I did ¬†little research.

Way back in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s Buffalo was the largest and most prosperous city on the Great Lakes — so we became the Queen City. While Buffalo has seen more than it’s share of struggles over the past century we are making a proud come back. And once again we will be proving ourself to be, in fact, the Queen City — although anyone from here has always known that there was a lot of good to be had here, even if our crown needed polishing.

This is one of my latest Buffalo paintings: Queen City Beer. It’s 18″ (H) x 24″ (w)
