Blues Musician Bobby Kyle / The Milford Journal

Photo © JoAnne Kalish and article

I’d like to share an article I did in the April 2018 issue of the Milford Journal on Blues Musician Bobby Kyle. I’ve always considered Bobby to be multi-talented and I’ve known him for a long time.  Bobby has a new album out called “It’s My Life” and if I can make a suggestion….I think you should pick up a copy and find the time to go see him & his band live.  He’s a phenomenal artist and you’ll be glad you did!

I wrote and illustrated the article and because my partner Joe DiMaggio, has been working with Bobby for many years, he also contributed photographically as he has some incredible photos of Bobby.  Joe also has a chapter on Bobby Kyle in his book “FILL THE FRAME” and if you’d like… a signed copy can be purchased directly from us or you can purchase one through Amazon.

I’m including a pdf of the article in case you don’t have access to a copy of the Magazine (click here -)  kyle  Below is the cover of Bobby’s latest CD and a link to his website   http://www.bobbykyle.com/index.html

Peaceful Protest

I do not believe in violence.  There’ve been too many tragedies caused by people who are mentally unstable using Guns.  Something must be done to change this!  It’s time for each of us to take a stand, so there are no more senseless deaths.

This was a Peaceful Protest last night, a Candlelight Vigil held for the young people who were killed in the Parkland, Florida School Shooting.  Young people will be marching in Washington this month and I believe they can truly make a change.  They are our future.  Candlelight Vigil -6297

Post No Bills

Joe’s and my first date was in NYC, during Chinese New Year on a rainy evening.  Joe made this beautiful portrait of me, in the rain with red cheeks and next to a Post No Bills sign. 

 Ever since then, every time we’re together and when we come across a Post No Bills sign, he does a portrait of me.  I thought I would share it with you.

In looking for the first portrait, I came across another that I fondly remember and it was when I brought Joe to meet artist Will Barnet.

More from My Abstract Series

I’ve been having fun playing around with random shapes and colors and it has become a challenge to see what I can come up with.  Which ones remain my favorites and which ones I get tired of.

All in all, it is a new direction for me and I’m curious where it may lead…
