Go see Elizabeth Peyton's exhibition at the New Museum. My portrait is not in the show but here's the study Peyton did of me and my brother Charles around 1995. Peyton's elegant and delicate sensibility is extremely well served by the survey. While you're at the New Museum also go see my good friend Mary Heilmann's wonderful retrospective. Her beautiful paintings are more complicated than they seem and easier to understand than you might be led to believe.

Judith Eisler's show show at Cohan and Leslie has closed before I was able to catch up with my blogging. Well, go to their website or go to the gallery and ask to see Judith's paintings. Her new painting, her portrait of me and my brain scans seem to fit together.


Nancy was great--so many things to see: the Musee des Beaux Arts, the Musee de l'Ecole de Nancy (art nouveau museum), the Villa Majorelle, the Place Stanislas, the botanical garden, the Museum of Natural History, lots more, and we saw it all. Next time I think I'll try to slow down and do a bit less.
