  1. My Aunt Brandy (Douglas) set up her easel in New Orleans and made a nice little living out of her talent...she loved the people she met and listening to their stories as she painted....love this artists work you have featured...

  5. He's got a great perch up there. I love watching how this somewhat unusual park is integrated into the fabric of city life.

  13. Daryl, we've made a plan to go on July 26th to the festival on the HIgh Line! All thanks to you! What a clever post! The scene on his canvas and your photo scene! Excellent! :)

  14. I was just thinking what TSannie said. Looks like you've found a new favorite place. And easy to see why. Perhaps we'll see your work hanging there someday, eh?

  15. Wow---the painting is fantastic. I love that you took a pic of the actual scene, too. I've always wanted to be an artist. My mother and my sister are incredible painters and somehow, I did not inherit that talent. Not even a little bit. This is amazing!!

  16. I would love to be able to be in that 'zone' - so oblivious to everyone - just doing what I want to!

  18. I made that great cityscape from above my computer "background" so now I have a window on your world, Daryl ;-)

    My blog seems to be updating in readers again (hallelujah) but I'm still posting "manually."

    I'll TAKE it!!!!

  19. This would inspire me to take up painting...except that I lucked out when that gene was passed around. Still, I'd happily lean on that balcony and watch the world go by, anytime!
    I played SSS today too- my first time. I finally feel like summer is really here.

  28. I like the photograph of the street scene. The age and bustle of the neighborhood makes it intriguing.

    Very thoughtful of that driver to drive a bright blue truck out of a red brick warehouse at the crucial moment. When you moved to get your camera, the Universe moved with you! ;-)

  29. Wow, he really is talented judging from what I can see on his easel and your photo!
    Great shot Daryl!

    Thanks for your visit yesterday.
