An evening of drawing beauty and fashion portraits at Treasure and Bond, this year's location for the Start Small Go Big 2012 Event. It was a pleasure to meet and draw so many glamorous and friendly people. What a fun evening. Thank you to Amy Laine and Bernadette Sheridan for being such great hosts.

Montauk - Labor Day Weekend

While vacationing with family, I managed to steal a few moments to make some drawings and paintings. The weather was perfect!

Street fair in town with Montauk tower rising up in the background.

An Elegant Afternoon

The transformative power of clothing and environment never fails to amaze me. I went to Governor's Island this past weekend for the Jazz Age Lawn Party, and I stepped back in time to 1920. It was a real treat. It was like being in a movie set with actors in costume, except these were real people, walking a little taller, sitting a little straighter moving with grace and sophistication, head to toe, as if this was their natural movement. What a treat!

Happy New Year 2012

Happy Chinese New Year! I met my friend Trang for dimsum at the oldest tea parlor in New York City, Nom Wah, on Doyers street. There were many tourists, just like myself which created a lively atmosphere and made our meal more enjoyable. If you've never have dimsum, think of it as Chinese tapas - sampler dishes of dumplings, usually 3-4 pieces and hors d'oeuvres-like dishes. We had shrimp dumplings, turnip cakes, vegetables, stuffed eggplant, pork buns, and a doughnut rice noodle roll, which I had for the first time and was weirdly good!
