The opportunity to show my artwork to my new neighbors in Plantation, Florida has finally been realized. After a recent newspaper article in the Plantation Forum, I have been invited to present a large volume of my work at The Schacknow Museum of fine Arts on February 5, 2011 to March 26,2011. http://www.smofa.com or email the museum for more information and schedule a personal tour of the facilities at Schacknowmuseum1@bellsouth.net

The excitement has driven me to begin making special preparation for my presentation. Frames to be polished and buffed, new matting, hanging devices, etc., the selection – choosing which painting to enter and which can not is equally hard, but a decision all the same. Max Schacknow, the Founder and Director of the Museum is an experienced artist that I can learn so much from. He gave me a tour of the museum and when I saw his work hanging there for all to see. I simply cannot explain the depth of my emotions as I walked from each exhibit to another. Some of the other artists that were on display have inspired me to dig deeper into my creative juices and produce even more exciting works of art.

Plantation, Florida has been an inspiration for me since I arrived in June, 2009. As an avid gardener, I appreciate the trees, trimmed hedges, the absolutely beautiful parks and especially love the marquis of most developments. Painting my way from the Caribbean to Plantation has been wonderful, but I am certain that painting Plantation, Sunrise and the surrounding cities and their uniqueness is going to be even more rewarding.

I’d like to wish all my friends a very Happy Thanksgiving and look forward to spending more time together.
