new year's party

I hung my 2007 calendar this morning featuring a favorite new artist--a humble Russian emergency room doctor, Alexander "Petrovich" Voitsekhovsky, who recently exhibited his drawings in a Russian bookstore in Manhattan. At the opening Voitsekhovsky poured champagne for me into a styrofoam cup, explaining shyly that it was important to read the titles of the drawings as I viewed them. You can see some of his artwork here: www.petrovichbook.spb.ru. If you peruse them, be sure to read the captions; I particularly like Vaso refuses to go to his sister's wedding (8), Girl from Ohio State (78), and April (121).

I've uploaded one of his images here, reminiscent of a new year's party, entitled Dance Lesson.
