Thoughts on art, life, and anything else that happens in between.

The Museum of Modern Art, New York
I can't believe that Greg and I finally made it to New York! It was my first time there and it was a bit overwhelming with all of the parades and vendors, and just people everywhere. Pure insanity! Our first night, we had a nice dinner at an Irish Pub and just took in the atmosphere. On day two, we started with breakfast at a diner across from the hotel and continued to walk around and investigate. By mid afternoon Greg and I decided to take in the De Kooning show before my own reception that evening. Again I was stunned, by the amount of work that was represented in the museum, and by the amount of people in there! I couldn't imagine a time where I would be able to just sit quietly and digest these masterpieces that surrounded me with such grace. It was a bit disappointing. But I tried to soak in as much as I could. Later that evening was my own reception for a show called "Imagination."
It was a private reception that included a panel discussion on Art and how it can have a healing, theraputic effect on the creator.
I was lucky enough to have reconnected with an artist from Boston also represented in this show. It was an amazing experience, one which I will never forget. And I am so grateful to those who have supported me along the way.
And one final thanks to my husband, Greg, who is my biggest supporter, and my love. I couldn't do it without you!
