We spent the day up at the Storm King Art Center in upstate New York. Here are a few quick shots of what we saw.
Died Monday night at age 82. He’d been very ill for a long time after (I think) a series of strokes made it very difficult for him to work. I always enjoyed the light, playful and transparent feeling of his work.

I wear this tie every year to Easter morning gigs.
The Cassini spacecraft sent back photos today from its polar orbit of Saturn, showing literally never-before-seen images of its rings from above. There’s a gallery of photos available on NASA’s Cassini site, but this one really grabbed me because of it’s beautiful, almost painterly, subtle coloration. Just barely visible the fringes of the inner rings at about 4:00 and 6:00.
Having found a gainful consulting gig with Big Financial Firm in Jersey City. Any time I’m in a new neighborhood I like to go exploring, and found that “Joisey City” has some really nice qualities.

Casino owner Steve Wynn was doing a presentation on his very famous Picasso painting, “Le RÃªve,” before it was auctioned and got a little carried away.
