"Bench Test"

5 x 7"

In the Art Institute of Chicago, in the New Modern Wing, visitors sit on long benches against a white wall.  I've said this before, it's one of my favorite spots to people watch.  Figures become forms against the stark background - I just love that.

From the Art Institute, a gentleman rests on the bench in the lobby of the New Modern Wing.

"Bored Certified"

As you may know, I will have a small solo show titled 'Museum Hours', opening February 28th at the Anne Irwin Fine Art Gallery here in Atlanta.  I got the okay to begin revealing the paintings, starting with this new piece, from the Museum of Modern Art in New York City - a mother viewing Pablo Picasso's 'Girl Before a Mirror' while her seemingly bored daughter sits beside her.

And now for something completely different - my good friends, Karen and Neil Hollingsworth's beloved cat, Maxy.  

And for some GoodTV ...  for those stuck inside with nothing to watch, stream in these two movies this weekend - Chef and Bernie.   I promise, you'll love these movies.
