The land of paradise wasn’t so idyllic the last few days. Florida got hit with a hurricane, called Ian that knocked out power to more than 1.8 million residents. That wasn’t even the most disturbing part. Just imagine living for hours with storm winds of 155 miles that spread 50 miles out. You are freaking out and you have no where to run.
That’s exactly what happened in Cayo Costa, Florida, a small island on the Gulf Coast near Cape Coral and Fort Myers. We hear the area has been completely ripped apart by the catastrophic winds and storm surges that reached 18 feet high. At this point, these popular and often admired sections of Florida are unlivable and will be for a long period of time. It’s difficult to comprehend.
I recently read that Ian “is now tied with seven other storms for fifth place in highest recorded sustained wind at landfall in the United States. Charley was another hurricane record breaker that hit the same section of Florida in 2004.
That’s the scariest part of living in Florida. While it doesn’t happen often, you go from living an active life outdoors year round with the most magnificent sunsets and gorgeous beaches, to monstrous storms that are totally life threatening. We hold our breath every summer to the end of October when hurricanes usually strike. Please, not this year.
Unfortunately, Ian was a doozy. Please help Florida recover. Many of our Three Tomatoes readers visit Florida at least once or twice a year. You know how magnificent it is. If you can, we would appreciate a token of your affection for the state. Send your love to https://www.redcross.org/donate/donation.html/.
Queen Elizabeth II may have been an avid horse breeder and corgi enthusiast, but her eldest son, the recently-crowned King Charles III, prefers to spend his time painting.
The King’s passion for visual art was cultivated from a young age. He learned to paint under the influence of Robert Waddell, a teacher at Scottish boarding school Gordonstoun, which was his father Prince Philip’s and his alma matter. He was later taught by British artists Edward Seago and John Napper. Additionally, he had access to artworks among the family’s Royal Collection Trust.
At 73 years of age, Charles has been painting—primarily landscapes—for nearly 50 years. Here are six paintings of some of his most memorable moments as Prince of Wales.

King Charles works exclusively with watercolor “to convey that almost ‘inner’ sense of texture,” as he wrote for an exhibition at London’s Garrison Chapel, where 79 of his works were shown.
King Charles is one of the UK’s bestselling living artists, having made an estimated £2 million ($2.14 million) from selling copies of his art between 1997 and 2016.

An avid skier, King Charles visited Klosters in 1988, where he narrowly escaped an avalanche. In 1997, the Swiss city used his painting of the area on its seasonal ski pass.

‘I Had Never Seen Anything Like It Before’: Steve Martin on the Spark That Led Him to Become One of the Top Collectors of Australian Indigenous Art
A selection of Western Desert painting from the actor’s personal collection is now on view at the National Arts Club.

Steve Martin has been back in the headlines of late, thanks to his leading role in the hit Hulu comedy Only Murders in the Building. But he also has a star turn this fall at the National Arts Clubin New York, which is presenting a small but striking exhibition of Indigenous Australian art from the actor’s personal collection.
Titled “Selections from Australia’s Western Desert: From the Collection of Steve Martin and Anne Stringfield,” the show features six works from among the 50 or so contemporary paintings by Indigenous Australian artists that Martin has purchased with his wife since 2015.
The couple’s passion for this still rather obscure area of contemporary art got its start at Salon 94 on the Upper East Side, which at the time was presenting the first U.S. solo show for Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri. Martin read about the show in the New York Times, and was immediately intrigued. “I got on my bicycle, and I went down, and I bought one,” he told Artnet News.

Martin, of course, had been collecting for years, starting out with a James Gale Tyler seascape he picked up at an antique store for $500 at age 21 and still owns; today, he estimated, it has dipped in value to $300. (Martin’s next acquisition, a print by Ed Ruscha of the Hollywood sign, has probably fared better over the years.)
The love affair with Indigenous Australian art, however, was something of a slow burn for Martin and Stringfield.
“We hung it, we loved it, but we didn’t really think about it for a few years. But there is a whole culture around these paintings, and slowly, through osmosis, I began to learn more and more,” he said. “The history of Indigenous painting only goes back to about 1970—before that it was sand painting, wall painting, carving, and this was the first time these images could be set down in a permanent way.”
Making lasting, portable works that could be sold was transformative for the Indigenous art community—and brought something brand new to the art world, a movement that became known as Desert Painting.
“I think it’s such a fascinating story,” Martin said. He also appreciated collecting in an area where there wasn’t a huge amount of established scholarship.
“It’s fun to have something to study, to try to understand, to apply your critical eye to without any outside pressure,” he added. “There’s not a lot of promotion about [these] artists. You just have to find it out yourself.”
Slowly but surely, Martin began buying more and more Indigenous art, even traveling with Stringfield to Australia. (Though they didn’t make it to the Outback, they visited a center where working artists create their paintings.)

They also met Indigenous artist Yukultji Napangati when she visited New York a few years ago and had her over to dinner.
“She made my daughter a family member, which was quite an honor, and I played the banjo,” Martin said. “Yukultji is quite a historical figure. She was one of the Pintupi Nine, and came in from the Outback when she was 13—had never seen a white man, had never seen a car—and then became a notable painter.”
As Martin and Stringfield’s holdings in Indigenous art grew, so too did their desire to show them to the world. To start, Martin staged a small show at the Uovo storage facility in Queens for friends and family.
Word got out. Next came an outing at Gagosian—nothing for sale, of course—that showed in both New York and Los Angeles, and an exhibition at the Australian counsel residence in New York. (That showed paired Martin’s collection with works owned by John Wilkerson, whose collection focuses on smaller, earlier works on board, before Indigenous artists got access to canvases.)
These days, Martin and Stringfield are winding down their active collecting.
“Our indigenous art collection is pretty dense—there’s not much left to acquire. Right now, we are just having fun moving works around,” Martin said. “I love to rotate things. Every time you move a picture, it’s like getting a new picture. You see it anew.”
“It’s an unpredictable melange of pictures. There’s some later ones—Timo Hogan is very contemporary,” Martin said, adding that “in the Australian Indigenous art world, a 50 year old is considered a young painter.” Hogan is 49.
“I’d like people to be able to see the National Arts Club show because it’s very, very unusual,” he added. “And I hope they have the same experience I did—I had never seen anything like it before.”

We never made it to Ischia because of the stormy weather.The ferries stopped running. Truman Compote and I had a writing date there. I will just “think about it” and suddenly it will happen. We are staying in Capri until we can get to Naples. So this is what it is like living on an Island.
Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB) today announced its 2022 exhibitor list for its 20th birthday edition in Miami. Some 283 galleries are slated to show in the fair’s main section, making it the largest edition in the city yet.
The fair will feature 26 first time exhibitors, and overall the gallery selection shows it to be positioning itself as a global art market maker for the Americas, with half of this year’s galleries hailing from locations in North and South America.
A stalwart of familiar faces with heavy presence in New York and L.A. are returning: Gagosian, Hauser & Wirth, Marian Goodman, Perrotin, Esther Schipper, and Thaddaeus Ropac, to name a few. But they will be joined by galleries like Rolf Art from Buenos Aires, Paulo Kuczynski from São Paulo, and José de la Mano from Madrid.
“It is truly exciting to celebrate our 20-year presence in Miami Beach,” Marc Spiegler, Art Basel’s global director said in a press statement. “Over the last two decades our show has not only reinforced its pivotal position in the region—uniquely bridging the art scenes of North and South Americas, Europe, and beyond—but also played a galvanizing role in the city’s profound cultural transformation. The increasingly diverse range of galleries and artistic voices represented will make our show richer in discoveries than ever before.”
Standouts from this year’s Positions section, which focuses on solo exhibitions of emerging international artists, are new work by artists Tonia Nneji and Ishi Glinsky at newcomers And Now and Ishi Glinsky.
The Nova portion of the fair, which focuses on new work by up to three artists, will welcome 11 galleries in 2022, including Yavuz Gallery showing the artist Pinaree Sanpitak, K Art showing Edgar Heap of Birds together alongside artists Erin Ggaadimitis, Ivalu Gingrich, and Robyn Tsinnajinnie.
Running from November 29 to December 3, the usual suspects of satellite fairs will also be present, including NADA, Design-Miami, and Untitled.
Next month, Art Basel’s long awaited Paris debut will also be taking place. From October 20-23, the Grand Palais Éphémère will welcome 156 galleries for Paris+ par Art Basel.
Art Basel’s Miami Beach edition takes place from November 29-30 (VIP and preview days), and will open to the public from December 1-3. See the full list of galleries taking part below.

We went to the young people’s area of Rome tonight for dinner. The area is called Trastevere. We ate at Taverna Trilussa. The food just keeps getting better and better. Four nights in Rome and now on to Positano tomorrow. We stayed at the Sofitel Roma Villa Borghese and ate at Girarrosto Fiorentino, Vladimiro ristorante, Settimio all’ Arancio and Taverna Trilussa.
