#Painting Sells For Most Ever

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — In the world of art, reports have recently revealed that the Arabian state of #Qatar secretly purchased a Paul Cézanne painting, The Card Players, for more than #$250million. “The deal, in a single stroke, sets the highest price ever paid for a work of art and upends the modern art market,” said Vanity Fair. This sale more than doubles the previous record paid for a work of art. A French artist, Cezanne (1839-1906), was a Post-Impressionist painter.

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Below is a painting in the developmental stage being created by my sister, #Peggy, which she is posting as she goes. I thought that it might be interesting for some of my readers to also see it as it develops. For some time now, I have been planning to buy an easel also for me, myself and I.

Here is what Peggy said recently:

By the way, on my way home just now I almost stopped at one of my favorite stops for that good ol’, N’Awlins home-style eating; but I opted for a place closer along my route. Also, I am somewhat on the Master Cleanse fast for a while. So, I thought that all the bread and meat that I usually eat at Parkway should wait for another day.
