Where’s the boob?

Where's the boob

The boob will steal the show every time, guaranteed. Yesterday, I hung my show ‘Summer in Paris’ – some 30 Parisian portrait paintings at Crossroads Gallery in Goodwin House, Falls Church, VA. The series represents over a year’s concentrated work painting the people I came across in my extended stays in Paris over the last few years. One – and only one – of the contemporary portraits is partially unclothed. Yet, for the residents of Goodwin House, the buzz was all about “The Boob”!!!! Faces are fascinating, but they just can’t compete with a naked breast!

The gallery is a real find – tucked away in a very art-minded, well-appointed elderly community development called Goodwin House. The gallery space is open, well-trafficked and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Opening reception will feature French sweets and wine served by beret-clad staff, and a wandering accordionist playing French music. You have to come see it for yourselves: July 13th, 2013 at 6:45 pm!

    Congratulations on this huge accomplishment on designing your own website. You did it all on your own, unbelievable.
    Really enjoying all your posts and pictures.
    One day I would like to come to one of your shows in VA.

    Manet painted boobs, too. They got his attention.
    Congrats on your website, that is quite an undertaking and accomplishment.
    The ceramics above are all very interesting, but none as much as your books with the singed edges that you had on exhibit at the Katzen so many years ago. I loved them.

I'd love to hear your comments!!
