Happy warm spring day to you! How was your weekend? Good? Mine was relatively quiet, lots of spring cleaning and dog sitting but with a SMASHING evening out at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. It was awesome!!!! A five hour show filled with great tribute speeches (Bette Midler) surprise appearances (Kid Rock, Sara Bareilles & Carol King) and amazing performances (Beastie Boys & Donovan). Thank you Rock Hall staff for putting on this amazing event for Cleveland. Saturday night the city was alive and totally rock n roll, you guys outdid yourselves. To catch the five hour show (in a two hour special) tune into HBO on May 5th.
Now onto the paintings at the coffee shop…I walked into Root Cafe for a morning cup of joe and fell instantly in love with the work of Michael Pomerantz. His candy-colored architectural paintings of the neighborhood streets and the urban communities took my breathe away. His use of colors brightened my morning, the scale of the homes, the charming tree-lined streets, it was enough to stop me in path and spend some time exploring each canvas.
