BETHESDA FOUNTAIN in Central Park

The Bethesda Angel looks her best in the summer……….  her pool  is filled with water lillies.

In 1868, Emma Stibbens was given the commission to design the largest fountain in NYC..  She was the first woman in New York City to receive such a commission.

The Early Morning SUNRISE………..in my apartment

Every morning I arise just as the sun is doing the same.  The apartment GLOWS.……I sit there with a cup of tea and the New York Times………..and bask in the glow.

I  fell in love with the “pincushion” flower when I visited my dear friend Simmie in Pretoria.  Now I have them year round in my living room.

These little guys are from the POTTERY BARN…………not a gallery in Chelsea.

nyc SUBWAYS are filled with ART

A lot of the subways are grimy……..a bit scary……..poor lighting……..trash abounds………but there on the walls…..ART.  Beautiful mosaics, movie posters, sculptures, art done by school children.  It is a visual delight.

TITS and ASS……and ART

TITS and ASS.…….. run rampant in New York.  On the streets……in the shops………on the walls of the Art Museums…………not to mention the thrift Shops.  Some of it I buy for my collection……..and a lot of it I don’t…….but I do have fun photographing it.

The Modgliani is my favorite.

ARMORY ART SHOW 2014 * NYC

This year’s ARMORY SHOW was a hoot.  No more lackluster stuff……it was a “blow-out” of wild and wooly.  Screaming women…….smashed heads………..multiple penises…….vintage bicycles……..heads pierce with nails.

New Yorkers with a passion for art turned out in droves.

Collectors, dealers and artists mingled and made deals.

CLICK ON YOUR FAVE to see if it was mine too!

A woman stuffed into a garbage bag by the artist Abigail Deville from her “invisible women” series.

Now, since I too am a collector……….did I buy any art?  DUH! ! !
