Outside the Spectum Tent at Art Basel local artists worked.

The Spectrum Tent at Art Basel in Miami featured Monique Lassooij and Eleazar Delgado hard at work on large canvases. Monique's work is somber being executed mostly in black and white with some hints of red, while Eleazar's work was bright with orange flames visible even on the back of his canvas. The canvases were held up with two by four supports which were anchored into the ground using lengths of re-bar. I found some nice shade and started sketching. The Art Miami tent was right across the street. There is so much happening during Art Basel that it seems redundant going into the tents. Besides the art, there is the lure of air conditioning however.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at

Thank you so much for this wonderful art work of me and Eleazar working on our pieces during Art Basel- Miami Edition. I remember you working on this one, but never saw the finished piece. By the way, Eleazar last name is Delgado.
