Robert Storr at Meek Hall.

Robert Storr and Bruce Levingston lectured/performed on Wednesday night. Dr. Storr gave an amazing lecture connecting music and art. He focused on the relationship between Phillip Glass (Ira's cousin) and Chuck Close. He also touched on Gerhardt Richter (one of my favorites). Bruce Levingston is a concert pianist. He gave an amazing performance- from Chopin to Phillip Glass. It was a great night. On Thursday morning, Mr. Levingston and Dr. Storr participated in a discussion at the Art Department. We discussed the possibility that the center of the art world has left Manhattan for Brooklyn. It was an amazing 24 hours and we hope they will come back. They had to skip the life-changing tour of the department by yours truly because of the weather.

Here is my new painting. It is small (24" x 36"). I am always interested in the compulsion to put faces on food.

Eicholdt Gallery

 Kevin and I headed south for the L.A. show opening at Spring Hill. We had such a good time! Of course, I forgot to take pictures while people are there. I love the tall ceilings and the checkerboard floor.

 It was cold in Mobile. The pelican fountain froze up.
After the show, Kevin and I headed down to the Causeway for dinner at the Original Oyster House. It was so good! We were the last people in the restaurant.

snow day!

 It snowed all last night...
Kevin measured the snow with his handy tape measure. We got 8 inches of snow in Oxford last night.
 Bottle Tree in snow...
I made a snow angel!

Hwy 45

 I went to Mobile yesterday to deliver my paintings for the show at Spring Hill. On my way back, I saw a familiar site, this slanted barn! I saw this a couple of years ago on another painting delivery trip and I fell in love. However, for whatever reason, I didn't pull over and take a picture. This time was different.

 I took some quick photos of the sunset while I was driving. The colors are much duller in the photos...
