New York City now has a new program that allows people to rent bikes on a hourly, daily and yearly basis. While walking in the East Village I saw this interesting lady riding her citibike. It put a smile on my face, I hope it does for you also.

Took this photo on Veterans Day 2013.
McSorley's Old Ale House has been a gathering place, a watering hole, the subject of art and literature and even a supreme court controversy. Established in 1854 - McSorley's can boast of being New York City's oldest continuously operated saloon. Everyone from Abe Lincoln to John Lennon have passed thru Mcsorley's swinging doors. Woody Guthrie inspired the union movement from a table in the front - guitar in hand, while civil rights attorney's Faith Seidenberg and Karen DeCrow had to take their case to the Supreme Court to gain access. Women were finally allowed access to McSorley�s in 1970! Enter the sawdust strewn floors and history patched walls for a trip back through time. Share the McSorley's experience with the spirits of 150 years!Posted:

The Holidays are a busy time for me. I paint "one of a kind" silk scarves. I find it, much harder to paint on silk than paper or canvas. It is a much more technical process and labor intensive. I use imported french dyes, overlapping colors using a wax resist. When I am finished painting, the silk is steamed for two hours to set the colors and make them permanent.
A silk scarf can last a lifetime, when taken care of. I have silk scarves that where given to me over twenty years ago and still look brand new.
They make the perfect gift! Visit my Etsy shop and see if there is one you love.

Took this photo while staying at the Irish Inn. 2012 The history of the Irish Pub dates back to the 19th century. It has survived hurricanes, prohibition, two world wars, high tides and low tides. It has fed the famous and infamous. Being situated on St. James Place & the Boardwalk in Atlantic City,NJ. It has been identified with the game of Monopoly and the red hotels used in the game are based on the architecture of the Irish Pub.

This is one of my favorite photo's of Zippy my pet Lovebird. I had pet birds all my life, but, zippy was very special. So sweet, funny and very affectionate. When ever I was on the computer he always tried to get my attention. He lived 14 years and passed away 4 years ago. I don't think I will ever get another bird again, no bird could replace Zippy.

My original silk paintings on silk scarves are available on my Esty shop. I studied Chinese painting with a master painter in N.Y.C. Chinatown.
I love the way the dyes flow on the silk. They are so beautiful to wear, it is hard for me to part with them. So, now with FineArtsAmerica I can share the image of them.

When I walked outside of my east village apartment I saw a crowd of people looking inside a concrete box. Inside was a painted image, always with my camera, I took a shot. Later, I found out it was painted by the graffiti artist, "Banky."
