Happy Holidays and All That Jazz…

I’m getting ready for another Black Friday in retail, today, but in Connecticut instead of NYC.  Yes, the move is final now…..I’m in Connecticut.  I had my first Thanksgiving with a working oven in about 10 years..and let me tell you, turkey cooked in a crock pot, just isn’t the same.

Ah, Connecticut…..

Home.  🙂

So, when last I was working on a drawing, it was the rainbow from last summer.  Let me tell you, I am itching to work on it again…but right now, I don’t have my drawing materials all in the same place.  Artwork is similar to an addiction for me, if I don’t do it, my peace of mind shatters and I get into a a withdrawal type funk.

But life goes on.  I said I’d never leave New York, but after 20 years, I did.  So, I won’t say I will never go back…if the circumstances are right.  Let me tell you, it’s a city where you need lots of $$$ to live a decent life, otherwise, it’s the dumps.

A Stroll in the Old Neighborhood…

Here I am, being nostalgic again. As we were packing the car with a load of *stuff* to take to the new place, I saw my landlord’s chair, against the stone wall. He’s had it there all the years we lived there, probably many years before, and now….

It got me thinking of how the neighborhood had been good subject matter for my artwork. I didn’t have to go too far for inspiration.

So, for those of you who haven’t seen them, a parting glance of a little street, in a very big city:
