We drove to NYC for the reception of the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club's Member Exhibit. I wanted to enjoy the show, meet fellow members (which I did).
The real ... amazing treat came when I entered our hotel room in Soho ... while husband Randy went to park the car. It has an unbelievable balcony and a shower with floor to ceiling windows with the best views in the city. I have a place to paint right in the room. If it rains, I can paint in the shower. If it doesn't, I can paint on the balcony. The views are spectacular!!!!!!
Randy and I came back from dinner and the reception and sat in the shower looking out at NYC at night. I don't know how many guests in this hotel do that. But they should.
I only had about 45 minutes in the room to paint before heading off to the reception, but that's no reason not to start.
Lots more fun tomorrow!
