A couple of viewers have noticed the small image gallery on the right column of this blog; I figured I’d take a moment to share a little bit of the story behind it. “Meola Works” was the name my late father Al Meola z”l used for his studio where he would create artwork with various media. He would sketch with charcoal, paint with oils, or sculpt with whatever inspired him. As a toddler, I remember our trips to the “D-U-M-P-S” where he would gather anything and everything he could use to satisfy his creative urges. He would work with paint on wood, metal, scraps of broken furniture, door panels, and whatever else he could get his hands on.
The Meola Works page will feature photographs of his original artwork, some of which is still “in the family”; my intent is to update the gallery with additional images of his work whenever possible.
