The Message – New York – 9.7.20
water-colour/acrylic painting 36″x28″ – 15.7.20
After yesterday’s post, in a New York frame of mind today, and a look back to 2015:
City of the Imagination I – VIII 23.9.15
City of the Imagination began on Day 261 in response to this week’s Photo Challenge: Grid. Variations VII and VIII were posted yesterday for Day 265, so today I thought I would put all eight together as a final City of the Imagination grid. Look for more to come in the next day or two that will definitely now be off the grid.
Juneteenth 2020 19.6.20 Acrylic on paper 24″ x 36″
Inspired by the words of President Obama and in support of those marching for Equality, Justice and Freedom in New York and across America today, including here in Vancouver.
“Juneteenth is a time to recommit ourselves to the work that remains undone. We remember that even in the darkest hours, there’s cause to hope for tomorrow’s light.” Barack Obama, 2016.
“A good book is the life blood of a master spirit,
imbalm’d and treasur’d up on purpose
to a life beyond life”

In commemoration of 9/11
New York, New York
This collage of an imagined Manhattan skyline was created from a Playbill from the Shubert Theatre for the show Crazy for You, which we saw on a visit to New York in 1993. I originally posted it in January 2015 just before our last New York visit and early in my 365 day blogging challenge that year. You can see the full image here on Day 26.
For today’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Grid, Michelle asks us to “…take the humble grid out of the shadows, and make it the star.” After seeing Leanne Cole’s wonderful photo homage to New York yesterday and Vladimir Brezina’s photos of New York today, it was out to the studio and the creation of an imagined grid of the wonder that is New York. As you can see it is very much a work in progress but good things may come of it I think.
City of the Imagination I 18.9.15
As promised on MoMA Mia, a gallery and slideshow of some of my favourite photos from our recent visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
The perfect way to spend a few hours on a New York Sunday afternoon in January.
