Michael Rosenblatt

A Young Artist of unbridled passion. Congratulations Michael on your upcoming shows at two prestigious Art Museums in San Diego County.

Michael will be showing at both OMA and the San Diego History Center this fall.  SDHC Members Only Reception is Sept. 19 (Sept. 19 – Jan. 26, 2014) and OMA’s Public Reception is Nov. 16 (Oct. 26 – Feb. 23, 2014).

I have known Michael Rosenblatt since 1993. We met in Artists Alley in Oceanside while we were both working day and night in our world of the hidden artists of Oceanside. In those days he could be seen walking up the alley in the early dawn, paint on clothes and hands with the eyes of the painter who was still in the thrall of “seeing” the vision becoming reality.

He was after coffee and I was just arriving at the Alley with my eyes half open … 5:30 being too early at my age.

“Another all-nighter” was all he said…I knew what he meant and gave him a hug. 
One of my most precious possessions is a self portrait of Michael. He was younger then, with hair and a beard. Now he is a man of great strength with the heavy brows of knowing his own vision of truth. Onward Dear Michael, keep the path of your truth and Thrive…
