My name is Sheneeka Young. I'm in the process of moving to Italy to expand my business field. I just bought a house in Milan, Italy and I'm interested in collecting an artwork for a space within my house to make it unique and beautiful.
Can I look through your website so as to pin point my choice , request for a quote and more information?
I look forward to hearing back from you soonest.
Prior to the U.S. delegation arriving in Havana, Castro's mouthpiece, Granma, listed (as Cubans say, "con cara dura") its conditions for "normalization." They are:
1. Repealing the Cuban Adjustment Act.
2. Lifting the embargo.
3. Removing Cuba from the "state-sponsors of terrorism" list.
4. Recognizing the Castro regime's "official NGOs" -- e.g. Committees for Defense of the Revolution, Youth Communist League.
5. Compensating "damages" caused by the embargo.
6. Ending the Cuban Medical Professional Parole Program.
7. Opening embassies in Havana and Washington, D.C.
So what does the Cuban regime have to do in return for all these demands of the Obama Administration?
Nothing, of course.
Asked whether Cuba's regime might at least examine how to expand freedoms to help the Obama pitch Congress on lifting the embargo, Castro's top negotiator Josefina Vidal said:
"Absolutely not. Change in Cuba isn't negotiable."

Deanna Schwartzberg’s exhibit of paintings; Primal Connections, will hold an opening reception at The Art Museum of the Americas, OAS/ AMA F Street Gallery, 1889 F street, NW, Washington, DC 20006, on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 6:00 to 8:00 PM.
In the paintings of Deanna Schwartzberg we contemplate the sensuality of nature and the human form. In her larger works elements of nature merge with the figure reaffirming her belief that humankind and the environment are inseparable. Included in the exhibit is an installation of 28 small paintings of faces inspired by her poem, “Primal connections”. In the poem she uses a female voice, her own, to express our relationship with nature. These works don’t seek to illustrate the poem as much as to find their own poetic rhythm to illuminate the flux and flow of humanity and the natural world. Schwartzberg’s art sets up a dynamic of color, light and form that sweeps through the canvas suggesting the sweep of natural phenomena and the role of humanity as part of this display.
