Tomorrow (Saturday October 8, 2016) is at 531 West 25th Street,
Ground Floor, Suite 4 in New York City.  The show
runs for the month of October.  If you're in town and want to
see it, you can call the gallery to get an invitation to the
special opening between 3 and 5 tomorow, or visit the gallery any
 time in the next month to check it out.

I am exhibiting a large diptych landscape called Heading Home,
and 2 other landscapes -- A magic day in the neighbourhood,
and Across the highway.

We landed in New York yesterday and have been to the MoMA,
and Rockefeller Square, where people are skating in the warm
weather.  New York is always exciting, with hits of beauty around
every corner.

Our first stop at the MoMA gallery is always the Monet Water Lilies on
the 5th floor.  Cannot get enough of them.  This time I read
that Monet started those huge paintings when he was 74 and
kept working in a large format until he was 86, when he died.
New things hit me about the paintings every time I see them.
This time I noticed that they are not framed.  That made me
happy, but each time I notice more colour surprises.
Wonderful.  I also love talking to the docents.  One measured
the large Matisse of the women dancing by walking in front
if it, and counting his one foot long steps.  13 or 14 feet wide
he said.  Amazing.

Have an enjoying  the art day.
