Fortunately for me, Saturday was not a beach faring day and that being so, I was able to budge from my daily spot along the seashore. Accompanied by my daughter, we left our beach chairs and summer readings long enough to take in the incredible and gifted talent of so many great masters of the arts.
Idyllically located in Bridgehampton, New York, well over 2,000 notable pieces were on display under the wide aisle tents of the ArtHampton Pavilion.

I also enjoyed meeting artist, Jim Ceravolo, and viewing his somewhat "provocative" paintings. Ceravolo, a pleasant and cheery man who has painted for over 30 years mixes abstract and realistic to create many of his pieces. Celebrities such as Rod Stewart, Elton John and David Brenner own the artwork of Ceravolo. While I was observing Ceravolo's bright yellow shoes, he mentioned the gopher that is trademark to some of his paintings. A cute little guy, the gopher, that is, but for the life of me, I can't remember Ceravolo's reason for it being there. It must have been the yellow shoes that zapped my recollection.

Upon exiting the great tents, I noticed a blank wall and stared. My daughter asked me what I was doing. I told her that I imagined that along with many others, I was looking at the art work of Karen Hitt - the award-winning artist that illustrated my book, The Big Bad Rain Monster.
