Signs of the Times XXXI and XXXII
While showing a friend my new work a few weeks ago, she seemed quite interested in these new little pieces. I showed her my vintage map of New York City with its wonderful blue color. She asked if I would do a piece for her with bits of the map, preferably with sections of the upper west side -- her old stomping grounds.
I decided to do two pieces and let her choose. She chose both.
I wish I had time to get better photos, but these were whisked out of the door before better outdoor conditions came around. That beautiful blue did not show up too well.
I believe there are six more to photograph and put up for sale on Etsy. Looks like tomorrow will be overcast and a good day for photographing. Then, it seems the series will be over. Never say never, of course. But . . .
I heard a little pinging noise in my head the other day. Like something teeny had been lodged in one of the gears in my brain and had finally fallen out. There's the possibility of new ideas.
Oh, I hope.
