- Friday Edition -
We are headed down to the farm this morning to pick fresh greens and ripe tomatoes for the markets this weekend. We also hope to find the last few canistel. 

This week, one of our regular market friends invited us to his art opening. We had the opportunity to go last night and even ran into other friends from the market! We loved his work and the surprising scale of the pieces. We thought it would be a great week to interview him. His work will be on show through Saturday. If you are in Wynwood, stop by and check it out!

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow in the Gables, and Sunday at Pinecrest Gardens.

Adena + Walt

I was born in Camaguey, Cuba and have been in the USA since 1985

Please share about what you do for a livelihood or what keeps you busy during the week?
I have been a painter all of my life. That keeps me busy. 
Otherwise I am working in the garden.

Would are your paintings like?
My paintings are a buildup of materials, gestures and mishaps, shaped by the tension between the formality of drawing and structure and the freedom with which I apply the pigments.

Rarely do I use recognizable references.
How often do you come to the market?
Pinecrest Market early Sunday is a religious affair.
The week doesn't feel the same when I am unable to attend.

Delicious coffee from the most beautiful Jamaican lady.
Baguettes and rugelach from Zak.
Fresh honey from Kee’s Bees.

And, incense from Patricia.

Avocados when in season! And the terrific smoothies.

Do you own your own business or offer a service? Would you share a pitch about yourself or company with the community?
I am currently showing work at Artium Gallery in Wynwood.  
What is the focus of your work at this show?
This group of works is a centennial celebration of Chaim Soutine’s legacy.  A playful, imaginary visual game where the ferocity of his brush, colors and textures morphs with the botanical world that interests me.

Soutine’s gestural energy informs, never dictates, a seminal drip of paint that then acquires its own life. A surface rich in layers of accidents that seduces with its suggestive equilibrium of form, and color almost garish, never excessive, still demanding for more.
Is there a question that you would like to ask the community?
Let's make certain that development doesn't disrupt our beautiful nature

If you would like readers to be able to contact you, how should they get in touch?
Which of these fruits does not belong?
Black Sapote
