The Rooftops of Paris

I am a member of Racine Artists Gallery, 401 Main Street in Racine (yes, they let almost anyone in) and starting this Thursday, April 30 all the artists bring in new work that will show for ninety days. Above is one of the pieces I'm taking to show. Please stop by.

The Artwalk in Wauwatosa was rained out today. I suspected that might happen when animals started walking through the rain, by the gallery, in pairs. But a spring rain is better than a spring snow. And the good news is Sandy Haeger, owner of One Way CafĂ© & Gallery has asked that my work stay until Saturday, May 24. Maybe we’ll sell something yet.

And today's quote:

There is nothing one sees oftener than the ridiculous and magnificent, such close neighbors that they touch. [Fr., L'on ne saurait mieux faire voir que le magnifique et le ridicule sont si voisins qu'ils se touchent.]~Bernard de Bovier de Fontenelle, Oeuvres--Dialogues des Morts (IV, 32), (ed. 1825)~

First day of the Wauwatosa Art Walk. Great crowds, great weather. 82 degrees, almost hot but the forecast for tomorrow is 47 degrees - summer doesn't last long in Wisconsin. Sales of about $1,000,000, give or take $1,000,000 but a good time was had by all and we met some very nice people. Tune in tomorrow for the adventures of day 2.
The Wauwatosa ArtWalk is today (5-9pm) and tomorrow (10am-4pm), come by if you can. Temperature in the high 70's and no snow predicted!

50 degrees and no snow today, can spring be far behind? Soon it will be July (Spring in Wisconsin) and the Tulips will be in full blooom.
American Daffodil Society's annual national show will be held this year at the Chicago Botanical Gardens in Chicago, April 24 - 27. Don’t miss this spectacular show of daffodils! A good friend, George Dorner from Long Grove, IL is president of the American Daffodil Society so I know everything will be first rate.
