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

sunlights of a misty sea

 

sunlights of a misty sea

daylight garish me

 walk a path

scatter dust

realize awakeness

scars a must

 

wake one day

realize the trust

bushels to bushels 

dark to must

the violet stayed

 

the violet stayed

while the grass frayed

Opening the window

the breeze churns

the hint of a smile

a slouch

a spurn

what is the beautiful

sounds to earn

up a mountain round the gate

this has passed

it is a fate

icing on the sidewalk

 

shes at ease

icing on the sidewalk

stools on the porch

wheres the milk

play too soon

die too young

at least she gets 

to see 

her son
