Georges Braque's Long Awaited NYC Retrospective

Dear Visitor,

I hope by now you know I love you and just to prove to you that I do; I am going to drop this link on you. 

If you are a (huge) fan of Georges Braque as I am, the Aguavella Gallery right here in Nueva York will be exhibiting his paintings in a major retrospective this October!  This wonderful news came to be via Twitter and published first in the Observer.  The best thing is this early heads up. 

How long have I loved the work of Georges Braque?  Let's just say it's been many years since I was an undergraduate studying the fine arts and first came to know of Braque and his friendship with Pablo Picasso. 

I'm thrilled that I in the New York City and will have this opportunity, am I ever looking forward to seeing this show. 

Thank you, Observer and thank you, Andrew Russeth!

End of the Hiatus

Yes, two weeks have gone by and I am here again to update, resize and reconfigure the J'adore site after what seemed like an endless hiatus.  The vacation vibe is still on but I am still thinking of my visitors, my creative production continues and my summer series of work is moving along nicely. 

I have posted some additional images elsewhere at my other art blog so please do visit or revisit to see how beautiful our local New York City area beach looks this time of year. 

Coney Island is breathtaking.  The water for the moment is clean and warm from first entry.  The beach has accumulated debris but not as much as in former years and, we beachcombers can do a bit of community service. 

Pick up a few plastic bottles or containers along the way and, it's all for the better.
