NEW YORK. I really don’t know what to say or how to put in words the feelings that are burning in my soul. I have been to NY plenty of times since I fell in love but never have I felt so free! I arrived yesterday and was very tired so the mister and I ordered chinese and slept, slept, slept. Today, I woke up late and got dressed for the most beautiful weather. The first order of business was to buy a sketchbook. There is a great two-story Dick Blick on Bond St. I bought a new sketchbook (with multi-media paper), 3 Visions (some of my favorite sketching pens), and a binder with clear covers. The binder was on sale for $2.17! Great buy! I haven’t had a sketchbook for at least 3 months now (shameful, I know) so all of my sketches have been on loose-leaf paper. I also have all of the recent beer labels I have been saving and I picked up plenty of NY art brochures, and postcards. The point is, lots of uh-mazing artwork is coming your way! New York, New York, New York. “Give my regards to Broadway”, I have got art to do!

  • Hey friend! I’ve been waiting to see pics of the Big Apple, and here they are! How awesome! My fave is the one of the “scrapers of the sky”! That phrase says it all!

    Thanks again for your wise words of support this week…it’s meant a lot, and has helped me to gain perspective about what’s going on now and what could be next for me!
