Please don’t panic, or celebrate.  I’ve been off of the blogosphere for several days recovering from a very angry virus.  Undaunted,  I have returned from a semi-religious experience at Miami Art Basel and and have reloaded my arsenal and visual library with new artists.    I would urge anyone interested in the creative environs to make the pilgrimage to Miami next year and really drink in the atmosphere.  It is refreshing and chic on every level.

Speaking of a breath of fresh air, painter Winston Chmielinski’s work feels like an art facial.  The palette is clean and the work simply glows.
