Art and The City

I was fortunate to spend almost a week with two of my best girlfriends last week.
That's us in the middle . . . okay, not really, but hum along.
Yes, this happened to be when my grand daughter arrived, but still we managed to fit in a ton of art.

The first thing we did was to shop a local flea market. Sorry, no photos; we were too busy shopping.The next day we went to NYC. To Metaliforous, M & J Trims, to Tinsel Trading . . .We visited many NYC stores, but the most notable was this one - the secret stash.An amazing store and incredible mess.I bought this (plus, plus, plus!).and made this -- a total copy of my good friend Karen Cole's work.

More to come . . .

And GO PHILS!

  13. I am flattered beyond words Leslie. You are a master of all things. I envy the way you can learn and do. Not only is it artistic, it's scientific and therefore, brilliant.

    ....and by the way, it's not a copy. It's TOTALLY your colors.
