I don't remember if the Ritz Plaza looked that way about 18 years ago, when I painted it with bright colors, but today, it's been renovated, a total makeover for a new shining, glittering life.

Waterpainting, 1991

This waterpainting and a hundred more drawings were presented in one my exhibitions in Paris, the them was "Miami Art Deco District" as we discovered it few months ago, in 1991.
Our last trip to Florida, last month Aug. 2008, we found many changes in almost 20 years, and this blog will present our reactions, feelings we had during this very last trip.

MIami SOuth Beach, 1991

This is a waterpainting that I had done back in 1991, during our first trip to FLorida. The Art Deco District was living a total makeover, after years of fear to see this jewel abandoned to greedy investors who could have transformed the area in brand shining contemporary (or not) condominiums and Hotels. Thanks to the Prevervation Association for the Miami Art Deco District, it's today a real smashing architectural lesson for those who will forget the beaches for a while and will wander in the streets around South Beach.
