  1. These are gorgeous paintings - thank you for sharing them. I especially like Rizzum and Blues - is this artist a relative?

  2. Thanks to both of you.

    Yes, he is my late father-in-law. The Baron Samedi was used as the front cover art for Dr. John's "Creole Moon" and the Marie Laveau on the back. I'm fortunate enough to own "Rizzum & Blues," which is a fairly large painting and the Ravi Shankar. Dimitri was a great artist and a wonderful man. I wish he was still around and painting.

  3. *Wow* Thank you so much, Kristin, for posting your father-in-laws *dazzling* paintings; what an exquisite legacy, and you have well honored him (and the lwa) by sharing this work. Each time I view them I discover something anew. Of course, they are now difficult to obtain but I will continue to seek them for purchase. I feel I would truly be missing something precious if they should be unavailable for viewing even on line in the the upcoming years. And you, by the way, have a brightness and vividness in and of yourself that prompts my smiles! Most Sincerely! Angelique

  4. I'm just reading this. I don't know how I missed it! Thank you so much for your kind words, Angelique. I'm flattered.

  5. Hello everyone, Is there any printings available of Mr Fouquet's art , I am fascinated by his Baron Samedi and Marie Laveau.


  6. While the Fouquet family retains all copyrights to the images and the original oil paintings, we had nothing to do with the actual manufacture of the posters. Dimitri was a generous man and allowed that aspect to be handled by a friend. I can honestly say that the family has received no monetary reward from this arrangement.

    That said, I did a quick Google search and found this link to Dimitri's Marie Laveau poster:

    I can't find anything on the Baron Samedi.

    Best wishes and thank you for your interest in Dimitri's artwork.

You Were Perfectly Fine by Dorothy Parker

This is my favorite hangover story. A raise of the glass to the inimitable Dorothy Parker.

You Were Perfectly Fine


Dorothy Parker

The pale young man eased himself carefully into the low chair, and rolled his head to the side, so that the cool chintz comforted his cheek and temple.“Oh, dear,” he said.”Oh, dear, oh, dear, oh, dear. Oh.”The clear-eyed girl, sitting light and erect on the couch, smiled brightly at him.“Not feeling so well today?” she said.“Oh, I’m great,” he said.”Corking, I am. Know what time I got up? Four o’clock this afternoon, sharp. I kept trying to make it, and every time I took my head off the pillow, it would roll under the bed. This isn’t my head I’ve got on now. I think this is something that used to belong to Walt Whitman. Oh, dear, oh, dear, oh, dear.”“Do you think maybe a drink would make you feel better?” she said.“The hair of the mastiff that bit me?” he said.”Oh, no, thank you. Please never speak of anything like…

Christmas Muzak was piped through to every store in the shopping mall. Giant red velvet bows adorned reproduction Victorian gaslights. Yards of glittered cotton pretended to be snow. A Santa rang a brass bell.
“If you ask me, it ain’t natural,” Ted muttered.
Sunny was more optimistic. In her blissful eighteen years, she had not yet had an encounter with Father Cynicism. “It’s like a miracle.”
Before he could counter her statement, she flicked on the vacuum cleaner and got to work on the big carpeted cubes.
Ted yelled, “Passive aggressive,” but nobody heard. He adjusted his belt, then fogged the camera lens with his breath and wiped it.
When Sunny had finished with the prop cubes, she turned off the vacuum cleaner.
“Freakin’ fertility drugs,” he called out too soon, proving he had been saving it until the din subsided.
“She sounded so happy on the phone that we could take their picture.” Sunny pulled down the snowy pastoral scene backdrop. “She said sh…
