Look at this glorious view of the New York Harbor. Five days a week I have the opportunity to jump aboard the Lt. Samuel S. Coursen ferry at the Govenor’s Island terminal for my seven minute ride to my beautiful new studio, where I am a participant in of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Process Space Program. A residency that one gets invited to apply for through only after an anonymous nomination. Thank you sincerely to my nominator!!
I love the ride on the ferry, while short, the views are fantastic.
Once on the island, it is less than a two minute walk to my studio. I moved in today, bringing with me a few of my friends.
Of course all this water has me thinking about boats. I had the original idea of building a canoe while in residence, and I just may start that but in miniature form and with the help of a kit. By July I will have a life size sea-worthy boat to paddle my way back to Brooklyn. Not have any idea of the laws and safety needed for the NY waterways, I found a boating safety course in April. But in the meantime since I only had paper, I made this tiny canoe today and had fun taking photographs of it. I am already dreaming about being on the open water.
