One More Look at the Gowanus Canal ( for now)

Debris barge in action. Mural across from the Whole Foods Market and a very large Faux fire hydrant. I think it is made of plastic and placed here for the benefit of dogs and their owners.

Canada Gallery

A family reunion of sorts at the Canada Gallery, Lower Manhattan, NY. I rarely post an image of myself but this was a rare occasion, visiting the Canada Gallery and meeting with Lily. The last time we were able to connect was in 2012; a few hits and misses in the interim . Lily has been painting most all her life, when not traveling with her best bud, Chloe Sevigny. Her work has been getting a lot of attention the past couple of years. She has done shows in the US and Europe, which always sell out. Currently her paintings sell in the $10K -$15K range, but will probably go up. She keeps an apartment in Port Chester, NY, but is rarely there. Most of her time is spent in Upstate NY, living and working in a large old house that was once a boarding house. Peace and quiet in the countryside, rather than the non stop noise of NY City, etc. More space to do her work. I’ve known Lily since she was a wee lass, holding our months old son on her lap. Like many artists, she is very unique in many ways; her approach to life, time, work is on her terms.

The opening ended up being very crowded, although it was a miserably wet night outside. I found out, while there, that I had been put on a list to go out to dinner in Tribeca with the gallery folks and the artists represented by Phil, the gallery co-owner. However, I passed on the invitation and slogged my way back to Delancey and Essex St. to catch the subway back to Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Note: photos were taken with my iPhone.

Odds and Ends

Bigfoot crossing, gnome home, auto art and a pseudo-selfie with bush.

Vespa Redux

I’ve taken photos of this former Vespa Club of Seattle building before. Now, there is a new mural on part of the wall so I thought it was worth another look.
