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)


Dr. Love…..paging Dr. Love….



I know what you’re going to say. Valentine’s Day? Already?

Yes, I admit it’s early to be thinking about Valentine’s Day. We have weeks of wind, snow, and COLD to get through before we reach that one, fleeting, warm and fuzzy, pink bright spot in the shortest month of the year. But it’s cold out there! All of the twinkling lights of Christmas and New Year’s are gone! We need a little sparkle in our lives — we need PINK!
