As I come closer to the time I will bid NYC adieu—on St. Patrick’s Day of all days—I am realizing that what I will miss most is the art scene and all the culture at my fingertips. When I was in the fashion industry, I always found that it was easy to be ahead of the trends since you were basically immersed in them while they were happening in this “of the moment” city, and painting is the same way. Thankfully, I will be back on a regular basis!
I took the photo above on a hot summer night and really liked how the open window divides the space and reflects the night lights. This is my apartment view looking up West End Avenue. It was taken before all the summer road construction, and they have since made the avenue much safer by reducing it to two lanes instead of four. This picture is a bit of a time capsule, I think.
