Photos from Palm Desert

We visited my mother-in-law and one of my brothers-in-law in Palm Desert. We took a hike to Indian Canyons and we took a lot of pictures – it was beautiful and a nice place to hike with wide trails and a stream running down the middle of the canyon. I also took a pic of […]

Odd Nerdrum show at Copro Nason Gallery

Aviva and I drove to Santa Monica specifically to check out a show of Odd Nerdrum’s work – we saw his work at a New York gallery years ago and really love it. And this show didn’t disappoint. The show at Copro Nason Gallery at Bergamot Station featured six pieces by Odd Nerdrum and a […]

The canals of Venice (California)

We’ve lived here over 6 years and still haven’t seen a lot of California (yet). So we decided to check out the canals of Venice, CA. We took the dogs, they had a terrific time smelling everything. The original canals were designed by Abbot Kinney, one of the early developers of Venice – the ones […]

More photos, Tagine and Aviva

Last week we visited Bergamot Station and saw a show I liked at TAG Gallery. The artist used an app called Waterlogue, so I downloaded it and played with it at dinner last night – we went to Tagine to celebrate my birthday on Friday. They didn’t have authentic tagine, and the food was very […]
