I moved to Brooklyn, New York about 6 years ago from Fargo, North Dakota. It was quite a change, but the Park Slope neighborhood where we live is a little like a small town (but just a little).
The street I live on is 1 big hill and can be a workout to climb with an armload of groceries.
Just outside my “office” is our tiny kitchen. This is where I find a lot of my inspiration and often grab things out of the drawer to draw. It’s of course also the source of that wonderful life giving fuel, coffee.
This is our little kitchen garden. We don’t have a backyard so this is the bit of nature we have to tend. The plant on the far right is a relatively new addition and it’s a Peruvian Purple Pepper plant (hot hot!).
A couple of blocks from my apartment is beautiful Prospect Park. This is my favorite bench to sit on and people watch.
Just at the edge of the park, is a street lined with beautiful old homes. This little cluster is one of my favorites. I love the old iron entries on the 2 little brick houses in the middle!
Finally, here I am along with Melvin the turkey in Times Square. I bought Melvin during an afternoon out, so lucky for him he got to tag along to dinner and a show that night near Times Square. Melvin and I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
