My One Woman Show at River Farm




 Dear Art Lovers,

You are invited to see my show of oil paintings, free and open to the public, at the lush River Farm, at 7931 East Boulevard Drive.  The location in Alexandria, Virginia, sits on the shore of the Potomac River, with splendid inspiration for painters everywhere you turn.
I am displaying solo, about 86 or more paintings at time, of my paintings of horticultural subject matter-- scenes of flowers, fruit, landscapes, seascapes, etc.  The show is entitled Floralia,  in honor of the ancient Roman festival of flowers.
Hours of the show are
Monday through Friday, 9-5, and Saturdays, 9-1.  Closed on Sundays and major holidays.  For more information, please call me at 703-768-6983.

Best,
Patsie

Do You Know What It Means, To Miss New Or-leans?

Dear Friends,

I am very happy to help if you would like information on visiting my beautiful hometown of New Orleans!!
I like to stay in the French Quarter on a quiet street that is walkable to many attractions, such as the Madison Dupuy. (Du-pwee)
You can then walk to the St Charles Streetcar, the French Market, St. Louis Basilica, the Pontalba Apts., the Jazz Museum, the Aquarium, the Presbytere, the St. Louis Number One Graveyards,
You can easily pick up a tour to see plantations such as Oak Alley or Nottaway, swamp tours with gators, etc.
Also there are great eats in the French Quarter that are walkable: Galatoire's, Bayona, casual- the Gumbo Shop, the Famous Fairmont Hotel's restaurant Domenica, and so much more.
Cafe du Monde is also not to be missed for cafe au lait and beignets.
Take a ride down the St. Charles Ave. on the streetcar, and ogle beautiful mansions, dives, and two universities. Visit Audubon Park or City Park for the live oaks bedecked with Spanish Moss.
Listen to live jazz as you walk down touristy Bourbon St. 
Shop for antiques on Royal St.
Magazine St. is a hotspot for all things fun, including the Israeli restaurant Shaya. Many antique shops and regular shops, art galleries, etc. await you!

Enjoy,

Patsie

Washington, DC and the Watergate Hotel

The Watergate Hotel, new and modern! Made infamous by Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal, today's Watergate Hotel is sleek and the epitome of modern design.

Jerusalem

 Jerusalem Old City
When the Romans invaded what is now Israel, they decreed that all buildings should be built of Limestone, which was both plentiful and beautiful. The city's architecture has an lovely unified ivory tone, and the material works well in the dry desert.
