The idea started with the Hirschfeld prints. Doug inherited these treasured pieces from his father. Albert Hirschfeld was an American caricaturist best known for his black and white portraits of Broadway stars that appeared regularly in the New York Times. Doug’s fathe...

If you have ever had the experience of being at a Bullfight you know that you are not really at a "sporting" event, because that would suggest there is a fair competition going on. The bull is often drugged and has been badly weakened by the lance of the horse-bound pi...

The Masters, one of the four major championships in professional golf and the first of the majors played every year, begins this week. Played annually at the illustrious Augusta National Golf Club, just 100 miles northwest of us here on Skidaway Island, Augusta Nationa...

I've wanted to hang a wall of family photos since we first moved to this new home in Savannah, but it took a back seat to the many other projects we've had in the last year. Finally I drug out the 5 enormous boxes of carefully wrapped framed family photos. I had not se...
