I watched the DVD of Pedro Almodovar last film THE SKIN I LIVE IN -- wow, creepy!

Then Saturday night we did some gallery-hopping, beginning at Coates Wyllie on W. 29th Street, where the group show CHARACTER SATURATION included Rupert Nesbitt's "Elusive Fox"

Then we taxied across town to Alexander and Bonin for Matthew Benedict's show "Americana," which included this beautiful collage construction titled "Silent"

Andy's favorite piece was the painting "Six of Spades"

Afterwards we had dinner at Trestle on Tenth with Jim Corbin, who stopped at Equinox to tweak the nipple of the Equinox spokesmodel

    Don,

    You like Trestle on Tenth? I sometimes go there for a meal, in connection with a walk on the Highline, to support a Swiss businessman in NYC, and because I like it. I take it for granted that you dined in the garden.

    So you went to Spa Castle. I have never been there. Is it gay at all? I am disappointed you did not venture out, though. You call that SNOW???

    Loved Matt’s Hoop-la! So that’s what haloes are for!

    Have a good week. Temps shooting up! Roman

    The Skin I Live In – strange indeed, but wonderfully so.
