any suggestions?

I can't remember the name of this artist, though I'm going to look into it. But, it was at ArtBasel in a dark room behind curtains.

Christopher Johannson at artbasel.
two beautiful pieces. I saw some drawings that were mildly unflattering for his work, but these two are another story altogether.

Deuces Wild

The Duece.
after-the-everything place to go. Good margaritas, though not particularly strong. Typical South beach limp wristed bartenders. Nice old ladies, but they need to pour stronger drinks.
Odd crowd, the art crowd.

quid pro quo?

5dollars for an honest appraisal of your looks @ envoy enterprises.
pulse art fair.
I was tempted, but did not care enough to do it. Plus, there were a few in line already for their fair assessment.

an excellent drawing.

Ben Peterson at ratio 3
NADA Art Fair.
A rare gem. This drawing is about 8ft x 5 ft...

more on this later.
