The Sketchbook Project

One Thursday a friend invited me to The Brooklyn Art Library, which has nothing to do with the Public Library.  It is a completely creative experience. They have over 40,000 sketchbooks on their shelves and 20,000 in their digital library.   The day we were there, they were preparing for a wedding, which was unique because it was a Thursday afternoon....not even after work...smart couple, to save lots of money. The staff were great and they answered many questions.  It was a great place to get inspiration and also leave a little of your own.

Once Upon a Time...

Once Upon a time, we thought we ruled the world.  We were talented, had ideas, and little to NO money....but that didn't stop us.

Her spirit and creativity lives on.....https://pendulumswing.wordpress.com/2...

In Tribute

When I was in elementary school I had already been to many of the NYC museums, before many of the class trips.  My Mother who was a NYC school teacher, made sure I was fully immersed in the arts.  She filled my world with art by taking me to all the NYC Museums.....which brings me to one of our last museum visits together. This must have been in the late 90's (don't remember the exact year) but she had a Whitney membership and we were able to go to the early opening....My mother had a great respect for art, even though Andy Warhol did not seem like her speed, it didn't matter, it was art and it was interesting. There...
