      • As tempting as an impromptu trip to NYC sounds, it is not in the works between now and mid-February! 😦 However, if I really want to see a bunch of his paintings (and lithos) all I have to do is head home to C-bus. The main art museum there has the largest public collection of his paintings in the world. 🙂
