Share Your World – January 29, 2018


If you had an unlimited shopping spree at only one store, which one would you choose? Why?

I was gonna say Macy’s or Bloomingdale’s but then I’d have to tote all that stuff home so I will say  They deliver. You can space out the deliveries and basically they have everything one could desire.

What is the worst thing you ate recently?

Well I try to stay away from food that upsets my stomach which would include fast food so I leave Mickey D’s, Popeyes and all those other greasy food joints alone.  I’m trying to get back into eating healthy or at least less of the bad stuff



Name five things you like watching…

The ocean waves ebb and flow along the beach.

Waves along any body of water

The Night Sky.  When I was a kid I Loved being outside in the summer observing the stars and making wishes





People watching at the Park especially Central Park or at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Artists at work.  The Main Bldg where I used to work has a Copyist program. Copyists are Art Students and/or Professional Artists who come to copy the Old Masters Paintings.  Fascinating.  I’ve had the opportunity to see artists from all over the world. Even made friends with a few. Incredible talents and gifts.

Subway Artists & Musicians and Street Performers.


Nature. Animals. Birds flying, Butterflies, cats, dogs mostly my crazy cat Sylvester.

Parades ~~  New York City has parades for every ethnic group in the city.  I’ve seen the St. Patrick’s Day, African-American, Puerto Rican and Steuben Day Parades.

Notice I did not say TV because I do not own a TV. Gave it up years ago.  Now I do watch Forensic Science, Mysteries, History shows and of course Hair videos on YouTube and movies on Netflix.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

Preparation for the Union Art Show 


Preparation for the Union Art Show


Last year 2017 I participated in the Employee Art Show and I was also able have one of my Photography Collages on display at the Daily Press a Coffee shop across the street from my house.

This year the Museum Union Employees are having their own Art Show that is separate from the museum. I’m a proud Union member of DC 37 Local 1503. The Union Art Show will take place in March. I have already registered and completed my Mixed Media Photo Collage.

After working for the museum for ten Yes 10 years I’ve been heavily influenced by the various special exhibits as well as the permanent collection.

Over the years I’ve spent many hours standing in the Modern Art galleries of the Main Bldg and since 2016 been on Night Shift in the Modern and Contemporary Art museum. Same museum in a different location.

Thus I’ve spent lots of time gazing at Jackson Pollack drip paintings. Like many people at first I discounted Jackson Pollacks drip painting methods but over time his methods began to intrigue me motivating me to incorporate his technique into my photography.

Not having a great deal of space in my house instead of dripping paint I drip nail polish or what some call Lacquer. I really enjoyed the process however my Masterpiece is now drying in the backyard due to the awful smell of nail polish. My cat Sylvester even left the bedroom electing to sit in the hallway watching me.


(For those of you who have no idea who is Jackson Pollack I have included two videos of him in Creative Action.)

Funny that right around the time I saw the flyer for the Union Art Show I saw the head curator for the photography department. Every time I see him he has always encouraged in my endeavors. Two other curators have also encouraged me.

God wants me to move forward with my Photography Blog Roaming Urban Gypsy as well as to expand my outreach in terms of creating and submitting more photos throughout New York city.  Therefore I’m stepping up my game for 2018. 


Here is a Sneak peek at my Photography Collage submission from inception to completion.

The Name of my submission is Broadway Junction en Lacquer.

This week, share something that satisfies you.

Spending time with my brother Stephen!

My Crazy Kooky Cat Sylvester!!  ❤   ❤



Spending time in Nature which includes Gardens and Parks large or small. Any Green Space. It’s all good. Rejuvenating for the soul and spirit.
