New York City – 2011
New York City – 2011
A friend of mine mentioned that I hardly ever post pictures of my colorings, so here are just a few. I love to color, it’s relaxing, creative and gives my hands something to do when I’m watching TV. I use gel pens almost all the time but also colored pencils as well.
One of my most favorites is this heart one:
My dad bought this beautiful 21×28 map of the Vineyard for me in 1959.
This hand colored print was done in 1926 by painter, illustrator and cartoonist, Lloyd Coe. who was born in Edgartown in 1899. I love the details and bits of historical information.
I’ve never seen this map again in any stores on MV. Wonder if anyone else reading this has one ?

Metropolitan Museum of Art – New York City
There you have it, my favorite posts from 2018… onward to 2019
Metropolitan Museum of Art ~ New York City
I was here last week to see Monet, Dutch Masters and much more, including mummies and the Temple of Dendur which although not an M, is magnificent.
After spending the night in Waterville, Maine we headed to Portland. It was too cold and windy to meander around so we went to the Portland Museum of Art which was lovely.
Good-bye to Portland and onward to Kennebunkport where meandering was a little warmer and less windy. First stop was a coffee shop where we had tea and shared a delicious piece of blueberry crumb cake. Kennebunkport is quaint and sweet, lots of nice little shops to poke around in should you be so inclined.
Leaving there we headed back to Ogunquit for our last night in Maine. We stayed this time at the gorgeous Gorges Grant Inn. The room was lovely and our decision to have breakfast in their restaurant ‘Raspberries’ was a smart one. Yum.
After a good night’s rest it was time to say good-bye to Maine and head home to New Jersey. But wait… who said we had to go directly home, how about a stop in…. Salem, Massachusetts. Woooooooooo.
First stop… the Salem Witch Museum which I found very interesting (and not scary at all) Second stop… Jolie Tea Company. The little cafe was a gem of a find, the tea was excellent as were the pastries… the staff was friendly and informative, we really enjoyed our short time there. Did bring home some tea and also ordered more from them.
This trip was all I hoped for and more thanks to my daughter Deb

‘O’ is for Orange…
and since I love pumpkins which are also Orange…
What a wide open field (no pun intended). I went through many pictures of fields and then I came upon this one and knew it had to be my post.
The Field Gallery on Martha’s Vineyard. CLICK HERE to read a about it.
**(from their website: The Field Gallery and Sculpture Garden is an unparalleled environment. Inside, three galleries present rotating exhibits of contemporary paintings, sculpture, photography, and so much more. Outside, the large field is home to the ever enchanting sculptures of Field Gallery founder Thomas Maley. The gallery represents more than 25 talented artists, each with a distinct island connection. Run by a small staff, the Field Gallery is a truly unique viewing experience with constantly changing artwork and Vineyard charm.)
The photos are from various visits to the gallery.
