Outside and Way Outside

Finding the poster with my
painting outside the Amsterdam
Whitney Gallery in NYC. The poster
above my hand shows my painting
in the upper right hand corner.

Over the next few days, make that weeks
I'll post pictures of our New York art experience
when possible. My blog is still a bit difficult to
access, but it feels great to be able to write here
at all.

Here's a picture from when we first arrived and
walked over to see the Amsterdam Whitney
Gallery. The Gallery is on the fourth floor of a
building filled with galleries on a street filled
with galleries in Chelsea, NYC. The curator,
Ruthie Tucker wants the gallery to feel like
a home, so there are comfortable and pretty
chairs, small tables here and there to hold
cards, and information, and the gallery is made
up of three large rooms.

The Liberty display at Times Square

We walked everywhere possible in New York,
given our very short stay. And took the
subway, and in the last couple of days cabs,
just to get places quickly so we could see more.
One night we walked over to Times Square.

Have a getting-the-technical-stuff-in-order day.

I can hardly wait! I'd go live in NY someday if I could. I want to get rich first. :)

Oh, what a nice photo of you and how exciting it all must have been. Looking forward to the photos!

Hi Eldon,

There's the conundrum. I'm sure it's better to be rich in New York, but you can visit with next to nothing. And the people are great.

Take care,

Hi Melinda,

Exciting beyond compare. And the whole time there seemed to be this small puffy cloud. I was showing the pictures to my printer today, and he marvelled at that cloud.
