Last Wednesday I took the PATH from Jersey City where I had also a fun day on Tuesday to New York City and visited my friend Julie Fei Fan Balzer. I love spending time with her. Not only is she an amazing artist, always happy to share and help with her never-ending knowledge and input, but also as a real friend. It is just the best to hang out with her.
Every time I visit her I get struck by the beauty of her art – in real life even more awesome. These two pieces were my favorite
After some chatting we went to MoMA. Not before takings some elevator photos- as those are Julie’s daily routine. As you can see…this needs practice – LOL
I love MoMA and every time you go there is something new to discover. This time Julie gave me her 1 Dollar tour…which she never got- although the tour was worth more…oh well…lol- ssssshhh
Cat and Bird by Paul Klee. I love the color choices
Paul Klee – I believe- awesome weaving!
Edvard Munch: The writing on the pre-study touched me – and it somehow for me belongs together with the painting
Geschrei: Ich fühlte das große Geschrei durch die Natur
Scream: I felt the big scream passing through the nature
my absolute fave by Paul Klee: Vocal Fabric of the Singer Rosa Silber
After all that we needed a little lunch break -nom nom pouched shrimps
and then we went to Rockefeller Center with a short glimpse of the tree. Here is a little tree parade – all what I saw that day in NYC:
THE tree, shortly before the lighting of the tree
awesome lego tree
Radio City Hall Tree lit on the way to Pen Station shot out of window of taxi cab
Anthropologie Tree with nice mirroring building
Speaking of Anthropologie- which is one of my most favorite inspiring stores, there is no visit to the States for me without going to Anthropologie. This time I have been in 3 locations- LOL. NYC, Montclair – NJ and Palm Beach-FL – call me obsessed
These boots were calling my name- until I saw the price tag- ahem, then the voice got more into whispering mode . But aren’t they just beautiful?
I want this fox – I love foxes
Funky bunny ornament
I would love to have those for my drawers in my craft room!
From there we went back to record the Adventures in Arting: Globally Thinking Podcast .
And after some tea and a bit more chatting with Julie and her Mom Eileen, I had to go home SAD…..Thank you Julie for an awesome day full of inspiration! I so can’t wait to see you soon again.
What is your favorite inspirational store?
