WASHINGTON SQUARE OUTDOOR ART EXHIBIT

Today was the last day of the art show…………but it will return next May for the 71st edition.

JOHN DORICH…..was one of two artists that I most admired in the show.

His etching titled “Artists studio 2” was my favorite of his hand colored works.

HENRY BUERCKHOLTZ was the other artists I admired.  Last Year I bought one of his paintings.


These paper mache sculptures were called “Love Children”.

This little guy went home with me.  LOVE REIGNS!

There were 4 other artists that held my attention.

You will recognize many of the artists………….Picasso……..Van Gogh……….Renoir.……….Burne Jones and Marie Laurencin [she was one of Picasso’s lovers]….and some of the art works were painted by me.
