top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>Perhaps I should have written Dear Diva Viewers, for today’s blog is light on the text and heavy on the travel pictures dedicated to my cyber-friend Judith at Studio Judith. She’s a mixed media artist and interior designer whose rather diverse portfolio includes everything from Airstream Trailers to Park Avenue Penthouses and whose works have appeared in everything from House Beautiful to HGTV to Sew Somerset. Of course, the work I enjoy most of all are those pieces of art and dreams she shares on her blog.

Judith recently did a series on Lake Como prior to my June trip to Italy and I think it might have been 3 of her posts on Como (Dreams of Another Place, Another Time, Como Dreams and Dreams of Lake Como) that inspired my husband and me to detour to Bellagio en route to Florence! Thanks for the inspiration Judith!

So Judith, these photos taken on my recent trip through the Lake Como area are for you! Alas, I looked high and low but Clooney wasn’t anywhere to be found – the pics of Bellagio, sans George, will have to do!

Visit Dolf D Van Omme at PAN AMSTERDAM

top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>Long-term readers have heard me sing the praises of Dolf D. Van Omme – a specialist in 19th-21st C European Fine Art. If you haven’t visited their Amsterdam gallery at Eerste Bloemdwarsstraat 19, now is the perfect time to mark your calendar to visit their stall (#146) at the upcoming PAN Amsterdam to get a tiny taste of what’s in store before you walk in their gallery door!

This year at PAN, as always, Dolf D. Van Omme will have some excellent artists on display! I can’t wait to lay my eyes upon one particular piece of their collection premiering at PAN Amsterdam – a pastel by Kees van Dongen (1877-1968) titled Paris la Nuit. Of particular interest as well is the work of artist Jan Sluijters (1881-1957). Dolf D Van Omme will be displaying 5 of his modern water colors from the Esser collection.

I received Dolf D Van Omme’s invite to the Nov 22nd opening day of PAN Amsterdam and was devastated to discover I’m out of town for this sensational first day event. Alas, I’ll be returning that evening from a house hunting trip to Berlin and fear that I won’t make it before the doors close at 9pm. Nevertheless, a day later I’ll be joining the masses when the fair opens to the public! Needless to say, stall # 146 Dolf D Van Omme will be first on my list of stalls to stop and visit!

Mark your calendar for PAN Amsterdam!
