New York artist Linda Cromer paints lush watercolors of colorful flowers in full bloom, or fresh ripe fruit nestled between the folds of the richest of fabrics and tapestries. I find it impossible to resist the beautiful shades, and even the clear water in glass floral vases. Come meet Ms. Cromer at the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit, which takes place this weekend and next. This art market first started in 1931, when unknown starving artists Jackson Pollock and Willem DeKooning brought their works to sell on the sidewalk. This year there are over 130 artists to see and meet.
