Not to point out the obvious but 2020 has been, at it's best, um.......bizarre. And yet, with all it's ebbs & flows, also as normal & heartbreaking as any other year. In short-ish:

  • I've continued to enjoy a number of commissions & sales thru blu Egg Interior Galleries & Chasen Galleries

  • Studio 120, my vlog web channel on YouTube, has over 400 vlog-gy videos about painting, the life of an artist, & with real time painting sessions thrown in; I started a Patreon page that's LOADED with rewards & have a new Facebook page dedicated to selling gaiters, masks & poster prints - Beck Lane: Gaiters & Masks.

my best friend, Bugsy, developed cancerous tumors in his mouth & fell so sick he had to be euthanized Aug 1st. He died at home with my body curled around him on the floor & our eyes locked on each other. Since Bugsy's death, my cat Kittahy (Tiger) has turned out to be a wonderful, less than affectionate, indoor/outdoor pal - exactly the dog like cat I needed to keep from becoming a complete hermit.

As for art: 

So, we're keepin' on keepin' on - doin' what we gotta do & still working towards the future & the goals I am bound & determined to reach. CHEERS peers!
