I found this on Google Earth, and it’s credited to Jan Prosek. I’ve been trying to seek out a website or a link to his work, to give him proper credit. It’s fantastic. I have artist envy.
I also wish I could find a way to paste the image in, rather just link it.
In other news, my wrist has gotten to the point where I can very gently do some artwork. I’m still too fragile to do large projects, so I’m working on Christmas cards. Yes, I know it’s February, but I want to have an inventory by October. I plan on doing a show then, and yes, they’re something that actually sells,.
Like this one.
While I’ve had this right-handless problem, I’ve been going over the past, drawings I did of NYC.
Going back to the glamorous days of working in the gift shop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Lots of great perks, but I really, I mean really hated the job.
Speaking of both the Met and Christmas cards, this is the card I did of the Angel Tree.
For day jobs, I worked twice in Grand Central Terminal. One of them was in the Market, at a little shop called Adriana’s Caravan. It was the most interesting jobs I ever held. Totally loved it, part of a great team. The store had a good following, too.
Visiting gorgeous lofts. This one was in Tribeca.
And having a skyline view to sketch from my studio window.
Yes, sometimes I miss New York. Our first night when we moved into Manhattan, we said “I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore”. It was an exciting time, but all the excitement wasn’t good. I was there for 9/11,for instance. Also trying to navigate the crowds on 5th Avenue on Black Friday put an anxious lump in my throat. Not to mention the subways……………..
So, I guess I’m back in Kansas, or Connecticut as it is. There’s no place like home,
