The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls-Pablo Picasso

Beginning in October I was breathless with anticipation of the changing of the leaves of the Ginkgoes lining 2d Avenue North. But I gotta tell ya that this dreary weather has challenged even those elegant fan-like yellow leaves insofar as uplifting my spirit. This morning, however, artist Victor Bokas delivered a painting which makes my heart soar. Clams, Shells & White Flowers (below) has brightened my day; I hope it brightens yours.
