We posted this emerging artist's work a while back - when he had just moved here from New York and was settling in to his sunny new studio space.  We went back for a visit recently and were happy to see that Boston is treating him well, and he's been busy turning out strong new work.  How often do you hear of emerging artists leaving New York for Boston?  We like it.  Maybe it's a sign of things to come.
