Thank you for the posting and invitation! I look forward to coming to my home town that I love very much - and pretty much drive through every weekend to visit my parents. I plan on sharing some of my latest work which is a rather wide variety of different materials including leaves, peat moss, rocks, concrete, wire, clay, etc - and talk about my 'dream' inspirations.

You are in for a treat. Ever since Robert was a child he created art. He plastered Tammy Diachenko's art closet with Disney characters. He painted a forty foot wall at his alma mater with a mural of a modern day Christ and apostles. The walls of our home are filled with Robert's early paintings, one which is a replica of Rembrandt's Old Man. He ran smack into that painting at the Hermitage in Russia when he was on a mission to exchange art with Russian artists. Along the way he witnessed the tearing down of the Berlin Wall. Yes, I am a proud Daddy. His career in Art is really only starting and he has piles of paintings, even ones I don't understand that grew out of his MFA at Columbia University. Robert is a delightful boy and thinker. His wife and three children adore him. Now what artist ever had the opportunity to have traffic stopped both ways in the Holland Tunnel in New York City when his bronze sculpture was placed in a firehouse at ground zero? But Robert will tell you all of that. See you Friday. robert's dad
