I got some all-round good news today. This amazing condo on the Upper East Side in Manhattan can be yours for a mere $7,500,000. Unfortunately, my paintings are not included! 😛

You may remember that I worked with the Felicia Zwebner, an interior designer in Manhattan, in the fall. I lent her some of my paintings to feature in her showroom in the presticous Lucida building on the Upper East Side on Manhattan. She’s moving her showroom and the 9 bedroom condo is now for sale by luxury home realtor Sotheby’s and they had included my art in their promotional brochure.

We headed to NYC early Saturday to pick up these pieces in Manhattan and to drop off a few at a gallery in New Jersey. It was so nice to see my “old friends” again, and I’m excited to show them off at Arts in the Park in Richmond, Virginia on May 5-6!

While on our road trip, we also dropped off a few of my paintings at a gallery in the hot spot Fair Haven, New Jersey. The owner, Debbie, reached out to me a few weeks ago and said she had seen my paintings online and absolutely loved my art. How exciting!

Fair Haven is an exclusive area, only 35 minutes away from Manhattan via ferry and apparently Bruce Springsteen, Jon Stewart etc. are just “down the road.” Wouldn’t it be cool if one of my pieces ended up in a celebrity home? For all I know, one of my pieces are already owned by a celebrity.

We left five pieces at the gallery and one more is in the works. Fingers crossed Single Tulip, White Twist, Yellow Hello Daisy, Green Calla Lilies and Red Closed Tulip sell quickly and there will be a huge demand for more!

During the little time we spent in NYC, we had a chance to celebrate our good friend Salih’s birthday with some delicious food at Rucola, a Northern Italian restaurant in Brooklyn (where I can’t even begin to rave about the food), and The Smith on 55 and 3rd. Sometimes I really get the balance of “work hard and play hard” right. 🙂

If you live in the US, you may see Salih’s work on TV here and there. He’s extremely talented with his feet firmly planted on the ground and a heart with no limits.
