Look at those spectators. I just love a cap toed shoe. Be it a Chanel ballet flat or a pair like that they'll fill you with utter confidence and an urge to dance like Gene Kelly. Try being slouchy or depressed when your toes are that satisfied. Of course I also love old soldiers in pith helmets, George Plimpton-esque boxing scenes and a good horse race. Phil Bower's new paintings capture it all. They're on display at the Kidder Smith Gallery in Boston until Nov. 1.
