NYC & me...5 year anniversary!!

I moved to NYC 5 years and a week ago.  4 days after I moved here I had my first and only solo bike accident without a helmet.. i completed my first week reconnecting with old friends covered in bandages.  

I was so excited to do a group gallery show the first month I was in NYC with artists from all over the world in the LES organized by Alexandra Catalan.

 Like a strong woman that captures  you with her tenacity; NYC is opinionated and passive ...alluring and vile...passionate and chill... I am smitten and I dont think Ill ever leave her.

here is a photo of the underdrawing of my beautiful friend Cyrina that was the first painting I began in NYC 5 years ago today. 

it seems like yesterday and a lifetime ago at the same time
