Flowers in the Bronx

Last year, we went to the Bronx Botanical Gardens to see the rose show which was spectacular . I used the resulting photos in several paintings.

Two rose
Only You

This year the orchid show was even better.

Many looked unworldly or at least made in China

like this garden

The winter that wasn't

80 degrees in March, the flowers are flowering, trees are budding and people are shedding their coats

Years ago my Grandparents would have been returning from Florida


.....and if it had been a real winter we would be returning from Marrakech about now.  I do miss Derb jedid ,our friends and animals most of all my ally cat Mr. Booger ( worlds coolest cat, king of the Derb)

Quantum Theory

In the fifteenth century artist Desiderio da Settignano  repeatedly used his son as a model over and over again.

I have been painting pictures of Werner Heisenberg, the father of quantum physics, for the last few years .
The beauty of an idea however uncertain.

Stars and Planets

 I started looking at the planets and stars from our roof top in Marrakesh . Last night , in the New York sky I saw.     


                                Venus and Jupiter
                           How one we all are.

Fast,Close and Heavy

Ever since my motorcycle accident I'm afraid of large objects moving fast close to me. But the visual effects are so compelling it's hard to resist.

Eleven   -
                   I used  to like to sit at Cafe' France and watch people walking in my direction. Squinting
                   from the sun, I watched them ,waiting to see if I recognize anyone.
