 Cuba is a nation trying to transition. Literacy is high but so is the poverty level. Jobs are scarce, and pay very poorly. Even doctors make only $25 per month.

The old architecture of Havana and Cienfuegos is gorgeous. Yet, there is no freedom of the press, freedom of information, freedom of travel. Castro's regime stole money from their people and it is virtually bankrupt.

Shaya Restaurant

Shaya in New Orleans, LA, is a lovely spot on Magazine Street and serves delicious hummus and entrees. Uncharateristically of the Southern food scene, the food is Israeli. And, it is a total wow!


Krispy Kreme is an inspiration!
I am a sugar fanatic.

Merry Christmas!

Dear Friends,
I hope that 2017 has been as good to you as it has to me. I sold about 14 oil paintings at my show at the beautiful River Farm, which will close January 2, 2018.
More details to follow!
