Walking into Chelsea from Penn Station is always enjoyable....seeing new things constantly in an always changing environment....took these photographs yesterday......

A couple blog posts ago, I put up photographs I recently took of a fire on the 59th Street Bridge.
Turned out that it was a truck fire....caused by a vehicle carrying a load of diesel fuel which, evidently, ignited.  Looked and sounded pretty scary.

More ART!

Here are several more photographs from the garden and some new art pieces recently completed in the studio!  I have been interested in old dress patterns and the cool tones of the thin papers and overlappings and one assemblage! Enjoy!

A Day of extremes

Last week, I woke up and went outside to enjoy the beauty of Catherine's garden and snapped a few photographs before walking to the train enroute to my studio.  A ride to Woodside on the LIRR, the number  seven local train, several stops to Queensborough Plaza and a 20 minute walk found me working in the studio.  Beautiful day....quickly into a few collages, working on a painting, designing some new cards.....and then...a loud, muffled thud sound....within, it seemed, seconds....I looked out the windows of my studio and saw a horribly dense, dark smoke rising from the 59th Street Bridge.
I thought the worst.  Grabbed my camera to get a few images of this scary scene unfolding in front of me.
