NYC Report

Shame on us, but Melicious and I did not make it to Winkleman's on our trip to NYC last weekend. I'm sure he'll forgive us though as we spent Saturday in Brooklyn at their wonderful museum.

While the hubub was all about the Leibovitz and Mueck exhibits, we were totally blown away by Walton Ford. Go quickly as it ends on the 28th.

I cannot tell you how cool his works were. Nothing but seeing them in person does them justice. And the stories behind them are incredible. One was based on a Hemingway quote about wounding but not killing a hunted animal. Another reflected upon Mr. Audubon's travails at painting a raptor.

Sunday's trip to the Whitney was nice, but the Ford exhibit blew everything away. GO!!!
