The Norman Rockwell Museum

While I was in the states I met up with a lot of friends. Among them are the Tolkes. Some of the nicest people I know. Cathleen and Barbara are in this photo with me outside of the Norman rockwell Museum. It was an amazing experience. I never thought I would get a chance to visit here. Thanks to them I did. He was a fantastic artist. Really, really fantastic.

Apres Expo

Oh my head. I hope everyone else woke up feeling the way I do. That is, I hope they had a good time :)
There was a great turn out last night. About least sixty people came from those we invited and a couple of people wandered in from Bastile because they had just come from another vernissage. Thursday is a very popular evening for exhibition openings. Thanks to everyone who came. It was a great evening. Not easy being the host and answering questions and pouring wine all evening, all at the same time. Perhaps next time I'll get someone else to take care of the wine and food side of things.

Carlton Arms-North Wall

Some more friends and the painting on the north wall of the tombs etc.

Behind Ron, Barbara, Katz, Hugho and Ariel is the bar on the first floor of the hotel. The bar is an actual guest room. It has to been seen to be believed.

Carlton Arms-Some details

The godess painting (Aisling withthe Apple branch) on the left and some friends (my brother is the one with the beard and no hat) in front of the reception area of the Carlton arms.

Carlton Arms-Room complete

We had a great evening last Monday. The room is finished and I've been invited back next year to do another.
It's a great place and I felt right at home.

On Monday the party was great and went on till very late. Lots of friends came from far and wide and the guests in the hotel joined in. The Carlton Arms knows how to throw a party.

I'm sorry that I didn't take more photos of the event but I'll post the few that I have later. There's a sense of anti-climax now that it's over but I had a great time.
I return to France on Friday. New York is great.

Latest Update

Latest update. Looking good for Monday. Carpets coming in in the morning and the last minute touchups after that. Lots of little grass stalks to paint between now and then.
