I finished the bike and started a new painting of two raccoons I saw in Central Park when I went to see the Tatzu Nishi exhibit called Discovering Columbus. You climb up 6 flights of stairs and end up in a “living room” in which the statue of Columbus overwhelms the space. Interesting, odd and fun, one can walk around the statue, sit on a sofa and watch TV, read a magazine, look through the bookcase or out the windows at the views of Central Park, down Broadway or up Columbus Ave. All with this GIANT statue in the middle of the room. My niece Caroline and I were fixated on the flat screen TV in the room.
Me: There’s a 13 foot statue of Columbus in the middle of this room
Caroline: Look at that flat screen TV! That’s the flattest flat screen TV I’ve ever seen!
Me: Oh yeah, wow.
We have priorities.
After we discovered Columbus we took a stroll through Central Park. Walking over a bridge we stopped to look at the fall foliage and the ducks in the water. Suddenly we saw two raccoons pop out of a drainage pipe. That’s the painting below. Yes, I know it doesn’t look like anything now. But it will. My favorite part so far? The orange “frisket”! LOL!
I know I’m a little late, but Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. My sister-in-law who is displaced from the storm was supposed to have Thanksgiving this year, but couldn’t, so my sister stepped in and both families had a wonderful day together.
