My friend Elizabeth. Elizabeth is an incredible person, artist, business person and most importantly, friend. This incredible paper sculpture (It is so beyond that I can't even tell you) was a gift this year for my birthday. Everything down to the flag on the bike was personalized for me. To have someone know you this well is truly a gift. Elizabeth, today I am grateful for you.

I am amazed by the NYC area. Here we are barreling down the Taconic state parkway and in an hour we will be strolling through the lower East side?

Trains have a long history of being intertwined with Graffiti artists. Artists will tag and re-tag the same trains. Are they just defiling the trains, or are they adding to the trains story and beauty, chronicling where the trains have been and the people they have interacted with. What do you think?
And I Love the colors in this one...Even if I don't really know what it is! What do you think of graffiti?

The subtle color of this Octopus and his home set the stage for the little pops of red that are my favorite part of this work.

Not that I am showing off, but there will be some name dropping in this post. I recently travelled with my blogging partner in crime Anne Marie of Military Martha to New York City, this year's home of BlogHer 10. There were lessons and lectures but most of all there were parties. And on that note...

We follow Jimmy and a woman as they befriend each other and their lives are forever intertwined as they experience September 11, 2001 and the changes it brings to their lives and their relationship.
Jimmy shares his lifelong love of art that has seen him through Japanese internment camps in California, as well as his world wise views on a post September 11th world. A need to help him along in the world rewards his female companion with a lifelong friendship with a man who needed her help as much as she needed his.
Treat yourself to a summer movie afternoon. Draw the shades and watch the Cats of Mirikitani. You won't be the same after the credits roll.

Several years ago Sarah (eldest daughter) and I took a little holiday weekend to Barcelona. The official goal was to brush up on our Spanish. The actual goal became to ingest as much of Antonio Gaudi's world as possible in three days.
If I could crawl inside of anyone's brain for a day, it would be this revolutionary architect. I can't fathom having his vision, let alone actually bringing it to life and leaving it as a gift for those who have come behind him.
Check your expectations at the door and enter a small corner of the world of Gaudi.
