Ghost in the curve

they spent fifteen minutes of nine o´clock at night when cobos decided to leave. he had several hours in front of the computer screen, without even blinking and thougth it was time to go home.
Outside in the street, it was dark was a good time. the wind was blowing with unusual force as a prelude to a storm that was about to arrive.
Before closing the office with your key click on the small console key to activate the electroniv alarm. he waited a few seconds after was on duty an instinctive gesture and therw the coat over her shoulders. the cold grew worse and began to drizzle.
Briskly reached his car, an old dark green renault despite years was in fairly good condition.he opened the door and quickly introduced into ist interior.
He inserted they key in the ignition and in a few seconds a soft light gave life to the control panel. he turned the wheel of heating at the top and prepared to begin the march toward home.
The storm was becoming more virulent as he walked away from the office he still had 50 miles to get homr located on the outskirts of a small dormitory town he decided to turn the radio to make the journey more pleasant but the deep voice of the annoncer of the program of mystery that is so disturbing flooded the dark interior of the vehicle.
He turned right to koin the country road for which would have to travel several kilometers.did not like to go home this way, especially when the night was as unpleasant as this since the firm been several accidents in recent years some of them fatal. this had also led to talk of people clamiming that a curve would show a cobos was not a person to givr much credence to such stories but he had to admit there was something in the roas which caused a strange feeling of uneasiness.
He had left behind the lights of the towno and the darkness is everywhere. only the glow of the headlights was able to break the came over him. realized he could not hear any noise saving the radio and the sound of the engine and tires on the gravilla. stop at the car door and left.outside it was raining heavily but could barely hear more than the engine noise and the patter of raindrops on the roof of the car. it was introduced back into the vehicle and started running without fris clearing of all that he had tingling in my stomach.
His uncertainty did not last long. looking out the car´s rearview mirror that he realized he was not alone a woman totally soaked in a white dress and look away was in the back seat.
It was impossible to find there: the vehicle had only two doors and no way coul accss the back except for the drivers side dorr because the other was damaged for several days and could not be openen.
his heart began beating rapidly.stopped cold and his hands covered his face hoping that was all his imagination but when she looked in the mirri the figure was still in the same place.
cobos turned and asked the woman stammered who he was and he was foing there however this diid not articulate a eord his gaze was still lost god knows where.
it could not be. i could not be anyone there i could not be that old story of women of the curve he wwas going to him he did not believe in such nonsense decided to leave the car and take a look from outside he must be the fruit of his imagination.
He grasped the handle of the door with his hand ready to leave the car and suddenly felt a strong ptrssure on the neck he felt two hands as could as she pressed steel preventing the passage of air to the lungs he looked surprises by the mirro and the image he saw caused him panic the opposite his eyes seemed to be going out of their sockets and reflected a hatred that had never seen in ningunta another look.
he tried to escape from the hand of women but i was impossible gradually as the only oxygen reached his lungs he lost consciousness sure i was goin to die bur not yet understand why. until she brought ther lips asn said in a voice devoid of expression we will be in hell where i am from that ningt that i get hit in the curve just passed renember?
they were the last words she heard after complemete darkness reigned.

Two Of Frank Lloyd Wright Houses Up For Sale -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

The LA Times had an article today about two Frank Lloyd Wright houses that can't find any buyers.  The Ennis House in LA and the Alice Millard House in Pasadena both designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1920's are up for sale.  The Ennis House was originally put on the market last summer for $15 million and is now reduced to $7.5 million.  The Millard House is priced at $5 million down from $7.8 million.  Both houses are made of Wright's trademark textile-block building system and both show the influence of Mayan Architecture.  The foundations that oversee the historic homes found they could no longer afford the high cost of restoration and maintenance and are now looking for buyers.  What is more incredible than having two Wright houses up for sale at the same time is that there appears to be no buyers.  Could the housing market in California be that bad?

Hale Woodruff -- Happy Birthday -- by Florida Fine Art Blog

Hale Woodruff - August 26, 1900 - September, 1980
This is the birthday of the great muralist Hale Woodruff.  Know as a painter and printmaker Mr. Woodruff spent most of his life working and teaching at many of Georgia's colleges. 

Hale Woodruff spent time in Paris during the 20's and 30's learning his craft.  He was influenced by the cubists as his early work reflects.  Mr. Woodfuff also studied with and was inspired by Diego Rivera, the famous Mexican artist and muralist.  The murals that Mr. Woodruff completed during the Great Depression for the Golden State Mutual Life Insurance Company in California (a collaboration with Charles Alston), and the Art of the Negro at Clark Atlanta University Art Galleries are what he is most know for.  Purvis Young, Miami's most famous artist and muralist, spoke of Hale Woodruff and his influence.

Art Dealer Helps Police Arrest Suspected Art Thieves in Coral Gables -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

A Miami couple who allegedly stole paintings from a warehouse in Miami were then caught in an FBI sting trying to sell the stolen paintings to a Miami art gallery. 

Article at WSVN TV News

It's amazing what walks through your doors as a gallery owner.  Fine art galleries, like jewelry and antique stores, get very sophisticated criminals and a fair share of idiot scam artists.  The first month I opened my gallery on Las Olas a man came in with a photograph of a painting he said he was willing to sell.  He claimed it was a small watercolor of northern Florida by Winslow Homer.  I was intrigued at first knowing the famous artist did come down to Florida for a short while.  When I asked for the price and how soon he could bring the painting into the gallery he began his big pitch.  You see he liked me, I know we just met, but he really really liked me.  The painting he claimed was worth $100,000 to $200,000 but because he liked me I could buy the painting from him for just $5,000.  Of course he would need the money immediately and would then ship the painting to me when he got back home.  I would have to trust him and buy the painting without even inspecting it, and why not, he really liked me.  I passed on that offer and many like that over the years.  What criminals don't know is that most art galleries are in touch with each other and the FBI.  We often share information about possible stolen works of art.  GL

MOMA App for the iPhone -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

MOMA in New York has a new application for the iPhone and iPad.  With the new app you will have access to the museum's extensive collection of modern and contemporary art and database plus a dictionary of art terms, calendar of exhibitions and playlists of audio tours.

I have been downloading audio tours for museum shows to my iPod for the past few years.  Sotheby's even has video podcasts now of their auction results.  It is great to see the visual artists take advantage of all these new media devices.  I would like to see all the great private and public collections easily accessible like MOMA's.   The impact of the artists' skills is often lost in a digital image but the possibility of watching a slide show with audio commentary of a newly opened exhibition half way around the world is very appealing. Of course nothing will ever take the place of seeing the work live.  GL

St. Petersburg's Museum of Fine Arts names Kent Lydecker as new director

ST. PETERSBURG — The Museum of Fine Arts has a new director. Board of trustees president Seymour Gordon announced Monday that Kent Lydecker has been selected to head the institution, which has been a cultural anchor of the city since it opened in 1965.  This is the first directorship for Lydecker, 61, but he has held senior staff positions at major museums.  He replaces John Schloder, who retired in July after nine years as director. Lydecker plans to start in October. 
"I met the search committee in early July," he said. "It was my first time here. I was blown away. It's a beautiful city, a beautiful building with a wonderful collection."
