SKETCHES from my Dining Table

I am running out of space on my dining table………pencils taking over……..and I just ordered 200 more.


CLICK on the HONEY POT…………..

I am making “20 minute” sketches of whatever lands on the table in front of me.

AUTUMN on my TERRACE

The trees in Central Park are in their full glory……..just in time for the NYC MARATHON.

The view from my terrace…………overlooking the Dakota apartments.

 

 

 

The Autumn sunsets are always spectacular.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FARMER MARKET FUN • then Lunch

We schlepp to the farmers market every Sunday morning and load up for the week.

My favorite farmers are always there………..flowers……….veggies……..cheese and fresh fish from Long Island.

When I get it home………….I love to photograph it all before I cook it.

Purple beans with garlic….okra…..fish with grilled squash and tomatoes.

Chickpeas salad……….spinach pie……….and Cosmos.

YUM YUM YUM……….having a “taste” before my guests arrive.  It is 89º today and I am wilting fast!  [The flowers seem to love it].

 

 

Taking a Lunch Break from FASHION WEEK

LUNCH ON MY TERRACE………no runway shows today.  I needed a break from all that fashion.

 

Summertime on my Terrace

TIME FOR LUNCH……………you can join us.  I never do dinners……..so don’t

plan on that.  Wine and cheese at 7pm works too.  Just ring me up.
