We can't all be Swans!

Sunday Bird Watching

A fun Saturday exchanging Christmas gifts (I know, a little late) with my sister, nieces, nephews in-law, and grandnieces and grandnephews. On Sunday I used the 1G memory stick I got as a gift to take some photos in Heckscher Park. After the Picasso, Braque & Leger drawing show at the Heckscher Museum, we had a Greek lunch with enough garlic to keep vampires away for a year! Then a brass band performance at the Library, and a gallery show on the Avenue. A lovely Sunday afternoon & evening at Ann's. What a great escape from the HPT headaches!

Africa & Contemporary Art

Haven't blogged for a while. While I see some bloggers made a resolution to post everyday, I decided to only blog if I had an interesting photo or comment to make. Sort of like only eating when you're hungry!

Yesterday I spent the entire afternoon at two NYC galleries that featured the work of contemporary African artists. The Skoto Gallery in Chelsea had a solo show of major pieces by the artist El Anatsui.

This was my favorite piece. Here are some close-ups of these fabric-like drapings....

These "cloths" are created from small pieces of metal from bottle tops, "sewn" together with copper wire!

What a wake-up call!

At one of the hotels in India, the sunrise was greeted with the sweet sounds of a flute-like instrument. What a beautiful way to start the day. Just feeling a little nostalgic about last January's trip. Posted by Picasa

Happy New Year - 2006!

OK, I've used this photo before. It's my all-purpose "Here's Looking At You, Kid" toast.

Wishing you all Love, Friendship, Good Health, Peace in your life and in our world!
