Yesterday in Paris the Picasso museum finally reopened after 5 long years. It was also Picasso’s birthday which the perfect day to reopen the museum. I hadn’t planned to go yesterday as I assumed there would be huge crowds and long lines. While walking through the Marais I pretty much stumbled upon the museum. Yes there were crowds but the lady at the front told me the wait would be 90 minutes. I waited longer for the Cartier exhibit in February in the freezing rain. This didn’t seem so bad. Plus it was opening day and if people in the states can wait days for the new iPhone than this wait wasn’t so bad. It ended up being about an hour total and everything went smoothly and the space was well gorgeous. Here are a few shots I got but keep in mind it was terribly busy!

This weekend I had a tent with my artwork set up at the Taste of Lincoln. 40 selected artists set up their tents full of items on Lill Street just off of Lincoln. At night artists close up their tent and security walks the streets to make sure nothing is taken. This time things were different. As I approached my booth Sunday morning I noticed huge holes on my wall of missing product. I checked to see if they fell and no, they were MISSING!! These were two sets of photographs on canvas that were from Nice, France and Lisbon, Portugal. A value of $920. I have to take it as a compliment I guess that someone loved my work enough to steal it. Which is why I think I might be the next Picasso. If you own some of my work you are lucky! 😉
*if you happen to find these at your local pawn shop or your neighbors wall please let me know*
I will be at Wilmette Farmers Market this weekend if you want to stop by and say hi! Next Sunday I leave for Paris but I will leave that information for another post.

All of my pieces featured in “The Gallery” are available on canvas in an 18×24 or 30×40. Ready to hang!
