My walk through the East Village / SoHo ... if you take the time to look, ART can be seen everywhere !! #lowereastside #soho #thebowery #streetart #guerillaart #wordonthestreet #warholwhereartthou #leslielohmanmuseum
A child's masterpiece found abandoned on the sidewalk, across from the community garden on Avenue B. Tonight it will adorn the wall of my room at the Bowery House. #lowereastside #childsart #gutterpicasso #streetart #lifeofgayartist #theview #boweryhouse
TBT ... there was a period back in the late 90's when I didn't wear glasses and I laughed all the time !! #laughteristhebestmedicine #lifeofgayartist #rememberthat
Whatever "it" is in your life ... hugs !!#wordstoliveby #signofthetimes #lifeofgayartist #visualaids #untilitsover

TBT ... 1983 ? The house on Olivia Street in Key West. Somebody recently said: " You were a twink back then ... !! " I don't think we had such a term back in the day ... I was just " skinny " . #lifeofgayartist #artistinresidence #keywest #thosewerethedays #youngandqueer
A guest book entry from 2 years ago. Pretty much the same ... although I didn't do dishes this visit. #augustonthelake #lakelife #journal #lifeofgayartist #sunapeelake
Up at Lake Sunapee for the annual League of New Hampshire Crafts Fair. Hanging out on the lake with these fine gents @robertsiegelman, @259studio11, and #markyounkle. Such a wonderful time ... #augustliving #sunapee #lifeonthelake #lifeofgayartist #theweekofpie
It's been a magical week that began at a reunion last Sunday ... a nostalgia for a place that was integral to our lives as gay men and artists. Tonight ... it culminated with dinner in a small restaurant on Parmenter Street in the North End. I have not seen this young fellow in 37 years ... and here we are in what I hope will now become an annual tradition. Thank you to @isaacspaul for making the connection, for the memories, for the dinner, and for the new friendships. #bucksrock #summercamp #batikshop #batikboy #cracksinthewax #northendboston #lifeofgayartist #reunion

TBT ... Sometime in the mid 80's. In keeping with the Buck's Rock theme this week ... a boy and his batiks !! #bucksrock #batik #fiberart #lifeofgayartist #cracksinthewax
Not much has changed between us in the 30+ years since we worked as camp councilors in the batik shop at Buck's Rock. Hanging out with my dear friend Barbie this past weekend at the 75th anniversary camp reunion. As much as things change ... some things remain the same. #bucksrock #campcouncilors #summerartscamp #batikshop #thekidsarealright

When the queer-lings come home and home is not a place. Lunch today with @knightjak before his ferry crossing to P-town !! #lifeofgayartist #queerfamily #smoothsailing #pridetribe #pier4toPtown #wecoverthewaterfront
An old sketch from the 80's ... never realized ... maybe a new batik ? #lifeofgayartist  #quicksketch #sketchbook #whatwasithinking #gettowork
TBT ... early 90's ... when I was still a pup !! #mylifeasadog #puppygames #waggingmytail #sunsouttounguesout #rubmybelly #throwmeabone #idontplaydead
My loft is made up of little shrines ... places lived ... other lives. A bowl of pottery shards from Provincetown, shells my godson brought back from Hillsboro Beach in Florida ...a place where I buried my heart years ago. A decoupage table by a young artist in Canada and an antique Viaticum ( cabinet for implements used in Catholic last rites ). #shrines #momentos #stilllife #curiosities #lifeofgayartist #home
