Rockwell by Jerry Breen vignette

Jerry seems a bit perplexed as he begins work on a special project - a very unusual collaboration. Check back  occasionally and view  the work as it progresses.

Old Lombard Street, Baltimore

Old Lombard Street painting
Prints Available!

The original version of this painting depicting Baltimore's legendary "Corned Beef Row"in its glory days hangs on the dining room wall of Attman's Deli, one of the few landmarks remaining from the old days.  Mr. Marc Attman, the current proprietor of the beloved Baltimore  deli, commissioned it. Jerry based it on photos in Mr. Attman's collection, as well as old city zoning maps. It's a kaleidoscope of the neigborhood in the early 20th Century, featuring many of the street's most memorable businesses, (not all of which were in operation at the same time).
Many Baltimoreans have ordered prints of this nostalgic scene. You can, too! A print about 8 by 10 inches in  an 11 by 14 inch mat is $90. A print about 11 by 14 inches in a 14 by 18 inch mat is $110. A print about 16 by 20 inches in a 20 by 24 inch mat is $140. (Add $10 for packing and shipping to anywhere in the U.S.) Call 410-683-1562 or email Jerry at for more ordering information.

                                                                       The Tompkinsville Paintings  
Tompkinsville Staten Island painting
View of Tompkinsville (1996) (acrylic on canvas, 3 feet by 5 feet) 

This large painting depicts the view from the 2nd floor of my boyhood home at 416 Westervelt Avenue, Staten Island, New York, circa 1979. The neighborhood was so hilly that our front door was 60 steps up from the street and we looked down at the telephone poles (as you can see). Even the sidewalk was about 5 steps up from the street. Around the corner on Corson Avenue, the sidewalk was 2 flights up from the street! (There were concrete stairways built into the embankment. I know this is difficult to picture, but just take my word for it.) I had lots of shoveling whenever it snowed, and lots of weeds to cut with a sickle every summer. (You couldn't use a lawn mower; it would've fallen down into the street!) That's Tompkinsville in the foreground, and Bay Ridge, Brooklyn in the distance beyond lower New York Bay. Notice the full oil tanker (riding low in the water) on its way to the oil refineries in New Jersey.

                                                     "Coco Flambe"

One of Jerry's ongoing projects is a multimedia celebration illustrating the highlights (and lowlights) of the career of the showgirl par excellence, the fabulously fallacious, delectably delusory diva-of-all-divas Coco Flambe. (For a brief overview of the Uberdiva's life, see "All About Coco" below.) A few samples from the Coco ouevre:
