We don't knooow what we don't knooow, said a non English speaking professor of architecture when describing the famous Palladio in a lecture to us one time in Venice, Italy. We forgot most of the wisdom he imparted at our lecture but his expression "We don't knoooooow, what we don't know"(which he repeated throughout the lecture) is often repeated by us at parties and we(artists, Violtta and Mary Rose, Plein Aire Cottage Artists) all giggle uncontrollably at our little inside joke and at the fondness of the memory.

We just don't knooow who is checking out our blogs and what surprising, joyful news and invitations are coming our way.
Following my posting on encaustic painting, the Director of Cornell Museum contacted me and asked if I would exhibit some of my encaustic paintings at their museum. Cornell Museum at Old School Square is located in downtown Delray Beach, Florida, a first-class resort destination and a diverse, vibrant "All-America" city. This "Village by the Sea" is situated on the Atlantic Ocean between Boca Raton and West Palm Beach. Delray Beach is just 30 minutes south of Palm Beach International Airport and 45 minutes north of Fort Lauderdale.
