Quite unexpected and oh so exciting was my chance meeting with Robert De Niro while looking for The Sensuous Bean coffee shop at W.70th and Columbus. This great coffee and tea shop had the best Italian Roast coffee and was nestled in one of the most beautiful parts of the city-the West Side. The morning was just georgeous....cool and crisp. Melanie and I had walked up from 63rd and West Side (our apartment location), and were on a mission to find a great cup of coffee, and this shop was a GREAT suggestion-Thanks Alyssa!
Oh, yes, Mr. De Niro was sitting on the park bench in front of the shop when Melanie and I walked up. However, I was busy taking pictures of the sign, so the distraction caused me not to look at the two gentlemen sitting on the park bench in front of the shop! But he gently spoke to me and I answered back - shook his hand - and then we were inside the shop. So quick a meeting, but a great lasting moment cemented in my mind ~forever~.

From Central Park to Times Square - the most diverse and energetic city I have ever visited. This experience was once in a life time, and a life time is not enough time to see all this city has to offer. I LOVED it! I want to go back - as soon as possible. What an amazing experience; and one that has changed me forever!

I now am an associate artist at The DaVinci Gallery in Tomball, Texas. Please look at the website below to see my bio and a few pictures of some of my jewelry I have for sale as the gallery. I attended the gallery's First Friday function on Friday night, and met some of the other core artists. I had fun talking about their paintings, and just trying to learn the ropes of working the gallery. Alot of customers came and we even had live music!
Our next First Friday is June 1st and will be a fun one! Hope you can come out, as I know you will enjoy the beauty and warmth of a great fine art gallery!
