A rather tempered work of Hieronymus Bosch:
Siren-like beauties– very much like the Valentino SS 2015 Campaign. I’d say almost identical in interpretation. I’m not sure about the strength of Leonor Fini’s other works, but my goodness, to have this in my home:
Things that make my childlike soul go hop!:
Amazing mastery of painting, and the chemistry between the movement of the waves vs. the wood like whorls of the levitating mass:
The power of women:
The detailing and lifework on this was superior:
Birds and wood:
Being in your 80s and painting with such vitality and storytelling….
nothing but applause for this Columbian artist.
I have come to dread
The things in my head
For they run thirsting for blood
So here we are.
I have a professed love for burger that has burgeoned into a near weird obsession and I thank my friends for bearing with my interest and passion for these cute little potato bunn-ed/brioche bun things for the last couple of years.
Here are nyc burgers that a vast majority of New Yorkers or I have strongly liked for your perusal and fancies.
Curious as to know which burgers are my favorites in the city? (HINT: I love those verging on the salty, savory, packed styles, and I most certainly love a thick, tall patty, YUM!)
On a scale of the basic to the experimental:
My Homily to Burgers
Comments: Patty is on the sweeter side
Comments: Very good, it’s worth venturing into another borough
Comments: Vertical burgers
Comments: Burger is on the salty side because of that delicious cheese. You’ll either love it or hate it.
Barneys New York – Chelsea Downtown
Comments: Not fond of the fries, “pomme frites,” that come with it, but the burger is delicious.
Comments: Sadly closed. (RIP)
The Jane Restaurant
Comments: Solid, greasy shoestring fries
L’Aile ou la Cuisse
Comments: Very good, but I think the patty is very fatty or something. I get sleepy quickly whenever I go here to have their burger.
Mel’s Burger Bar
Park Avenue Tavern
J.G. Melon: Not really a fan, (gasp) sorry.
P. J. Clarkes: Not really a fan, (gasp) sorry.
Wilfie & Nell: Not really a fan, sorry.
Comments: From the times I went to get burgers here (more than a few times), all of them had a weird aftertaste smell. Maybe it was just me, or the times I went. Either way, a good burger joint’s burgers should be consistent, non?
Comments: Eh. It is clean. Not bad.
Note 1: I know I’m forgetting a lot, but there were just too many burgers!
Note 2: Maybe you’re all right. Maybe I’m eating too many burgers. 😀
Note 3: I’ve purposely omitted Shake Shack, and In-N-Out. Those aren’t the point of this.
Note 4: If you have suggestions for burgers in the city, please, please send them my way.
Bon exploring good burgers :).

Launched to fame in the 1980’s, Julian Schnabel‘s broken ceramic plate experiments heralded in a refreshing kind of art for the contemporary art world– cutting, reminiscent, and modern via a rough handling and bondage of paint and ceramic on wood.
While Schnabel created this rose series from the inspiration he received upon one of his visits to Van Gogh’s grave in Auvers-sur-Oise, France, he has worked also with portraiture, painting and immortalizing American names like Stephanie Seymour and William Gaddis.
Closing on March 25: Catch the rose works in their entirety at the Pace Gallery, 510 W. 25th St., before it’s too late!
