Spring Promenade, Gainesville Sun Article

My oil painting on canvas, Alachua Blue is shown in an article about the Spring Promenade Tour of Homes that takes place in Gainesville, Florida March 5th and 6th. 
The Spring Pomenade is a tour of seven historic homes in Gainesville's Duckpond Neighborhood. 
The painting is hanging above the fireplace in the great room of the Morrison-Richardson House which is owned by Lauren Groff and Clay Kallman. Their home is one of many featured in the 2010 Spring Promenade in the Duck Pond neighborhood in Gainesville. To find out more information about the event here's a link,  click... here.

Chrysler Building New York City

Spent a day in New York City this week and had great plans to visit The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Central Art Supply and Vasari Classic Oils.
Well mother nature had other plans, the weather was challenging with freezing rain. A huge snow storm threatened to close all metropolitan airports so it was best that we "get out of Dodge" or maybe end up sleeping at the airport for a couple of days.
On the way out of town I caught a glimpse of the Chrysler building's eagles clouded in inclement weather. The Chrylser Building is considered a master piece of art deco architecture. Here is an interesting article in Wikipedia.
