It’s a wonderful town

I’m heading up to New York in a couple of days, so I’m posting an image of this vintage canvas to mark the occasion. The canvas renders, in a stylized form, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and, of course, the World Trade Center.  It’s a beautifully simple homage to Manhattan. While there, I’ll be seeing old friends and best of all eating GREAT food in and out of the City.  As a special treat on this trip, I’m also looking forward to my “highlight” visit to the New York Botanical Garden.  I can’t wait to pay a visit to their Monet exhibit, where they have recreated the beautiful Giverny gardens, plants, and the  famous bridge.  The exhibit encourages aspiring visual artists to sketch, paint, or photograph this inspirational garden. COOL!
