I'm Back!

"Semper Fi"
Acrylic 12"x16" Canvas

I am happy to report I am back.  So sorry not to be blogging for just about a year.  I had some serious health issues that I am thrilled to say, after surgery, I am much better and moving forward.  I am on Facebook and have posted a few paintings.  If you wish friend me at "Michael East Boston." I am hoping to do more work soon and return to active blogging. Hope all are well.

It has been such a long time I am not sure if I have already posted this image.  Painting I finished recently to honor my brother's passing. It is of his backyard in Hull, Massachusetts. I recently gave it to his wife at the memorial service to commemorate the first anniversary of his death. He loved being a Marine.  Semper Fi Sgt. James Perchard USMC


  1. Bonjour cher ami,

    Je suis très heureuse d'apprendre que vous nous revenez après une période difficile. J'espère que vous allez mieux et que cette chirurgie ne sera plus qu'un mauvais souvenir.

    C'est une très belle oeuvre et un hommage émouvant à votre frère. Son épouse peut être fière de recevoir un tel présent.
    J'aime la lumière qui illumine cette peinture.

    Gros bisous 🎀

  2. I have been thinking of you Michael!!!! I'm SO glad you're back sound strong, my friend.... I love this painting you did...the light is wonderful and of course, the flags are absolutely beautiful. I'm so happy you're feeling better (you were missed!!)

  3. Hi Michael, great to see you back again! This painting is beautiful, I can feel the breeze coming in off the ocean and feel the lovely sunshine.
    I'm sure your sister-in-law loved being presented with such a beautiful piece of art.
    So glad that your health is so much better now.
    Your Aussie art buddy (albeit a fairly inactive one these days - artwise that is!:))
