On our New York trip we visited the Guggenheim Museum. It was a very enlightening visit. Photos are not allowed but, I snuck a few shots. These photos are part of the Gutai Group Show. The Gutai group was an art movement from Japan, starting in the 50s. The exhibit was interesting and something I have not seen before. I have heard about art movements in America and Europe. It was interesting to see this Japanese Art Movement. Some of the art I liked and some I did not but, I think the goal was getting the audience to think about art and the art of creating.
We also like the other exhibits especially Zarina, Paper like Skin. Worth a visit.

Charles Street, Beacon Hill. Can you tell I like Beacon Hill photographing. I certainly do! I loved how many of the windows were dressed up for spring and easter. The trees don't have any leaves yet so there reflection are pretty stark but beautiful.

Spring is on my mind. I took these photos on Beacon Hill, Boston, The Highline, NYC (one of my favorite places) and at the Gourmet Garage. I can't resist.
I am hoping to buy some Nasturtium Seeds for my hubby to grow. We were inspired years ago by the Hanging Nasturtiums Courtyard Display at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. This happens every year and I hope to visit this year.

My mom, uncle and I meet at Del Frisco's Steak House on Friday night near Rockcenter for a before dinner drink. There was a very lively Friday after work crowd. We made our way to Tribeca for a french meal at Cercle Rouge. Very good food indeed. After Dinner, we headed to Jersey City where my uncle lives. I had fun photographing on the way.

A week or so ago, I visited my friends shop Cristina Hurley Gallery in Canton Center. Cristina was hosting jewelry artist Avery Lucas. My mom also works here part-time and loves to be surrounded by all the locally made, artisan made work.
These wonderful vessels/vases are by my friend Lisa W.B. Walker. Some of the fun items at the Gallery. Lisa has been experimenting with dots and of course she loves to add flowers to her work.
These toys always make me smile
These are two examples of Metalsmith and Jewelry Designer, Avery's work. I bought a set of earrings and I was thinking of giving them to a friend but I am not sure now. I may keep them for myself
Cristina's Gallery also carries handmade scarfs and winter items. Although, with spring coming they are in the shop for a limited time. There are so many colors and choices
These scarfs (bottom photo) are made by Jessica Burko of Reclaimed to you. Colors of the scarfs range from subtle to very bright and cheerful. You are sure to find one to suit you.
Jessica is the leader of of a group I belong to Boston Handmade. There are several Boston Handmade members with work in the gallery. Everything from photography, prints, jewelry, fiber, and more...
I am honored to have also have work in the gallery.
Did I tell you how much I like this weekly post Make it Monday on Punk Projects? I look forward to this everyweek.

|Pylones in NYC|
I love to photograph windows displays especially in New York City. My very first photo when we arrived was a Pylones store window. A fun and funky store. It is so bright, it catches your eye right away. It is a beacon of color.

Four days of photographing is a dreamy thing, well at least for me. My mom and I traveled down to NYC to see my uncle and take in the sights. When we came back to Boston I stayed in the city to attend Silvertone's 16th birthday party. It was a late night indeed. We stayed at the very fun, hotel nine zero. I took the morning to walk and photograph Beacon Hill and Chinatown before heading to South Station for home.
Many more posts to come on my four days of photographing

I just bought Dirty Pictures filters from Totally Rad this week. I did use a coupon! I have always had trouble getting the right look with textured backgrounds. This takes my photos to a different place and look. I added in a tilt shift to a two photos. Kind of fun.

The Great Frame Up at Custom Art Framing in Norwood. I picked up my frame on Monday. I was very pleased with my choice and of course, pleasantly surprised by it. The frames were wrapped out so you don't know what you are getting until you open it. I got a nifty silver one with a great pattern and surface. That makes it kind of easy with photography or maybe not. The idea is to have your art relate to your frame. I am thinking.....
