rainy day in NYC

Spent a very inspiring day in NYC last week. There’s something about a rainy day that gets my creativity rolling. I like to look at the reflections on the street. Headed over to Pier 90 to see an art show. Meant to grab a shot of the Intrepid. So big! But it was pouring and windy.

start of the holidays

Was in the city this week and the festivities are already starting. Sipped a fun cocktail called “Sage Advice” which is gin, sparkling wine, sage and grapefruit. Had fun catching up with a friend and looking at some of the stores on 5th Ave. The tree at Rockefeller still had scaffolding, but the lighting is next week. Today is Thanksgiving-or as I like to think of it-one last day before utter chaos. :) Cheers!

Art on Paper

I recently attended the opening of Art on Paper down at Pier 36. My friend Lori had some of her lovely silverpoints in the show and because I had taught Thursday nights for years-was never able to attend her openings. I loved the idea of works on paper. I took a few photos of the art, but found the crown just as interesting. ;)

Whimsical drawings and I loved the beauty of the shadows from the piece on the right.

I adore alla prima like the plate above, but I should point out that this bust was made entirely from cut-out subway maps. The intricacy was amazing!!!
