At Red Dot Miami

Red Dot is in full swing. The traffic has been great; the visitors have been friendly and interesting and interested, looking especially at the William Baziotes paintings, the Angelo Pinto reverse painting on glass, Red Beach Flag, 1970, and the Peggy Bacon embroidery collage, Valentine Concoction, 1959.

There have been showers every day since we’ve been in Miami, all starting suddenly, coming down in buckets, and ending just as quickly.  It’s fine if you are snug and dry in the tent and it sounds wonderful. And then the sun comes out again and it’s beautiful!

Tonight is the opening of the Red Dot Fair, Miami.  Mostly we're ready and the fair looks great.  There was a brief shower this afternoon (sounded nice in the tent), but the day is really fine.  The "Recent Acquisitions" group is a little crowded, but I like it that way.  How else can we show the Peggy Bacons, Alexander Brooks, AND the Isabel Bishops!  

Brook's Bordello Nude, about 1935, relates to a bed headboard and footboard (both sides) that he painted with several boudoir scenes.
