funny faces

this past 
Sunday 
when
 I was over not shooting the moon
 I beautified,
met my pal Westside Wendy 
(she was planning on blogging under that name but never did I think she missed out on a good blog title) 
for brunch 
and 
a walk to the 
GreenFlea

we wandered
 up and down
 the rows of vendor tables
 the warm weather 
always
 brings 
new vendors

 I met 
Michael A. Potecha 
(map glassworks llc)
an artist
who works with
 both
 art and recycled glass
 upon 
which he paints
 I wish now I had my BIG camera with me
 because
 his art is gorgeous
 priced to sell 
 I did tell him 
I thought 
he was under valuing his work 
but
 he feels
 and 
he is right
that in order 
to get noticed 
he must keep his prices down
 for now anyway 

that little glass tray

(he makes tiles, tivots, serving dishes all microwave and dishwasher safe)

 which could be used for everything 
from a dish you keep on your dresser to put
bracelets or necklaces in 
to a dish on the table 
with canapes or some other small finger food
 use your imagination 
Michael 
sure 
did

says 
Connoisseur 
under that painted mustache
so whimsical
he said to me 
go ahead
 I'll take a photo of you


Hipstamatic app. Lucas AB2 lens. Rock BW-LL film. no flash. iphone 4.

and
 so
 he 
did

Michael
 can be found at the 
GreenFlea 
on 
Columbus Avenue at 77th Street,
 he promised to come back again,
 and
 you can see his work

I miss going to flea markets!!! They are so much fun!!! Love joking around with all the vendors!! One can meet some very interesting people at those things!! Since we didn't go to Florida this winter, I missed my flea-marketing! Love the mustache pic! :)

Oh I love glass. I have a display cabinet with lots of cut glass in it and a few pieces of art glass hanging in my windows. I'd love to see more of his work Daryl if you can get some photos.

Oh, his work is beautiful! I love the Koi Platter. And that mustache is fun.

wow. I went, I looked and I love.

I agree with the previous posters - the koi pieces are wonderful, and your mustache is quite charming.

I'm sorry you missed out on the moon shots; I saw it, but I was rather preoccupied at the time (it was during my son's wedding reception). So I missed the photo op too.

Very dashing indeed Daryl, there's something about a woman with a mustache haha! I can see why you loved his work, I would have had to buy the Connoisseur Dish.
