New York Art

I love being in a creative environment, and it's a treat to visit my friends in their creative spaces.  It really inspires me to start painting again.

Muralist Vicki Khuzami in her studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

Painter Denise Shaw in her studio in Soho.

Rifka Milder in midtown.

Paton Miller in Southampton.

artist/fashion designer/curator: Jesse T. Elliott in his atelier in Greenport, LI.

At my favorite museum, the Metropolitan:  Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations at the Met. 
 I never knew how avant garde Schiaparelli was, I may have a favorite new designer.

Glass balls adhered onto a taxidermied deer, no joke! In the Japanese gallery.

Great selection of Indonesian Majupahit jewelry.

And street art galore outside the Met, on the streets of Soho and LES.

The bigger they come...

Americans do like things super-sized, just check out these bikes!

Seen on the Streets of Soho, NYC

One of the best things about NYC is it's easy to be anonymous, and wear absolutely whatever you want and no one will bat an eye lash!
black & white theme in stripes, dots and check (on the shoes).

pajama bottoms and Chanel bag with runners no less

all purple on top.

There's no place like home....

It was a very stimulating one month in NYC, and as sad as it is to leave it, it's always so sweet to come back to Paradise.  HOME SWEET HOME.
