Michael Blaser's "Tall Stacks" print
Hi All,

Time for a plug for our friend and fellow river rat, Michael Blaser's new print celebrating Tall Stacks 2006. An article about the new print appeared in the Cincinnati Enquirer the other day and I have since lost the link to the picture of the print online. The print is really quite nice with the steamers Belle of Louisville and Natchez in the foreground with the rest of the Tall Stacks in the background along with the Queen City skyline and Roebling Suspension bridge back there as well. If I find the link I'll post it, or perhaps some more computer savy poster can post it here. Good luck with the sales Mike. Hopefully I can scrounge up enough money to get a copy. I'm still working on you to do a painting of a certain old diesel sternwheeler and a 1939 former corps dredge tender in the same scene. ;^)

Here's the link:


Sounds like a chance to see more of Michael's paintings and also a chance to meet the artist himself. Check it out.

Thanks Carmen! I just found it in an old e-mail!

Thanks for the link, Carmen. I just received a large size postcard today from the Tall Stacks Festival, with the picture and all the pertinent information to purchase it. Looks like we may have the DQ on the far left and the MQ on the far right in the picture. Am sure that some of you with sharper eyesight than mine, will be able to identify every boat in the picture!

We had a nice view of the DQ all day today on the Paducah webcam - had hoped to "see" her leave, but the web cam went down a little while ago.

The painting is amazing! I really hope I can go to Tall Stacks this year, I would really like to see the Natchez. (never seen her before).

Thanks AJ, Carmen, Pat & Nick I am going to create a new post with some interesting information but I really appreciate the support of River people and dearly love the town of Cincinnati. My wife hails from there. TS Committee asked me to do the job only in the middle of June & I have been paiting 12/7. The pallate is an interesting variation check the difference in [url][/url] The piece really stands out. More at the top of the post section.

On Labor Day I was in Madison (Indiana) visiting the antique shops. Bought some dandy steamboat photos, including a big framed hand tinted photograph of the GORDON C. GREENE belching smoke, taken just after her Greene Line tenure began inasmuch as the Eagle Packet Company gold ball is still between the stacks. Anyway, I noticed that Binzer's Frame Shop on Main Street has Michael Blaser's new Tall Stacks print in the window. Chip Binzer is a regional dealer for Michael's artwork and there usually is at least one Blaser steamboat print gracing the store window along with works of local artists. I've also purchased boxed note cards here of Mike's [I]Madison Landing 1936 [/I]print -- which features the GORDON C. GREENE, J.S. DELUXE and IDLEWILD. The shop was closed yesterday, but I got a good "preview" through the window glass and it's a dandy. Great picture Mike! Is that Doc at the NATCHEZ calliope???
