All politics are local....Yesterday I was listening to the Football Giants game and painting a landscape for a California wine label when my door bell rang. Local Democratic Councilmen, Ray Petronko and Joe Scrudato were going door to door asking if I had any questions about this November's election and their positions on the issues. The news junkie that I am, of coarse I've been following the race, and while I'm not going to go into the local issues here on my blog, I told them they could count on my support... These are genuinely nice guys who put in long hours of service to our community. After a long day of canvassing the neighborhoods they probably wanted to go home to their families, but they were very gracious to humor me when I asked if I could take their picture so that I could draw their portraits for my blog, . Thanks guys!!

    Larry, What a surprise. I opened your website to find a sketch on the closing of Yankee Stadium. I would have bet my last bottle of Golden Margarita...

    You're not the only one who's said that to me today, sorry to disappoint. My excuse?... Well, the short version is opportunity knocked on my door.
