Lilac’s 75th Birthday

When in New York recently, I joined a friend painting on Pier 40 (at the foot of Houston Street). I painted a small oil sketch of two of the tugboat Lilac’s stacks, which reminded me, for some reason, of my twin daughters. The oil sketch will be available—among many other works—at the celebration of the Lilac’s 75th birthday on Memorial Day weekend.

Hours are:
Saturday, May 24—10 AM to 6 PM
Sunday, May 25—10 AM to 6 PM
Monday, May 26—10 AM to 9 PM

(I won’t be at the artists’ reception, but it’s from 4-8 PM on Monday.)

A percentage of the sale of paintings will go to support renovation efforts for the Lilac.
