She is  flanked by newly married Alyssa on the left and Susan Reich, Jeff’s oldest sister, on the right. Jeff is tallest in the rear, and to his right are his brothers Doug, Tom and sister Cindy. Jeff’s father, Stan Reich, was unable to travel to the wedding.

After the wedding we stayed a couple of days in downtown Chicago. Here we are having lunch along the Chicago river waiting to board the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s architecture boat tour .

This photo is from the deck of our architecture boat tour. It was a fascinating tour - such a density of architectural styles and iconic  buildings!

We’re on the Frank Gehry-designed BP Bridge. It joins Gehry’s beautiful Jay Pritzker Pavilion (the low, curvy-walled bandstand building behind the bridge) in Millennium Park with the rest of the lakeside parks by spanning Columbus Drive.

Jeff and Farraday in front of the 3-story high steel sculpture Cloud Gate (locally known as The Bean) by Anish Kapoor. It is situated in

Millennium Park, which opened in 2004 and is a sculpture and botanical garden just south of the Chicago River downtown.

We spent an incredible afternoon in the Art Institute of Chicago, a renowned museum just south of Millennium Park.  Here are a few paintings that especially caught our eyes:

Robert Delauney, Champs de Mars: The Red Tower,  oil on canvas, 1911/23. We were struck by this painting of the Eiffel tower with its dynamic, cubistic spatial manipulations and strong colors juxtaposed with grey-browns.

Willem DeKooning, Interchanged, oil on canvas, 1955. The strong line work and bold, lush colors drew both of us to this compelling painting.

Ernst Kirchner, Kummeralp Mountain and Two Sheds, oil and encaustic on canvas,1920. We loved the geometric, jagged line work and strong green/red palette.

Salvador Dali, A Chemist Lifting with Extreme Precaution the Cuticle of a Grand Piano, oil on canvas,1936. We were taken by this mysterious surreal scene with its dramatic sky.

Farraday Newsome, as yet untitled, acrylic on canvas, 36” x 36”, 2015

We continue to be immersed in our studio painting! Here are photos of two recently finished canvases.

We recently travelled to Chicago to celebrate the marriage of Jeff’s niece Alyssa Masterson to Ben Carter in Winfield, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.

It’s already time to thin the young fall vegetable seedlings. Seed-sown lettuces, Swiss Chard and other greens are getting thick in the protective plastic collars that helped keep the seedling-loving sowbugs at bay.  A few mature, hardy Swiss Chards (red and yellow stemmed in photo) have kept us in greens through the fiercely hot Sonoran summer.

It’s also time to let some of the basil flowers go to seed to save for next year’s basil. It takes a few weeks for the seeds to mature. Basil is frost tender and our first frost usually comes in late November.

Finally, our Santa Fe Peppers are starting to produce again with the days cooling into the low 100‘s and soon into the 90’s.  We love this spicy, colorful pepper chopped  and stirred into fresh basil pesto pasta!
