I FANCY NYC


Painting a miniature flora panel under the 10x magnifier
A prayer book cover makes a good bar counter.  I had to cut off an inch to custom fit.
The stools came from the two bottles of champagne we enjoyed with Helen. 
I couldn't believe it when I found that tiny plastic champagne bottle 
on a street.
 Papers came from maps and brochures.
Largest scrap of paper I found.
The freedom wall...
That's Schist rock - 450 million years old - this is the bedrock of Manhattan!  
In the early construction, Central Park had quality soil imported to cover
 the poor rocky alluvium. The exposed metamorphic and glacial features
 in the park are amazing.



Me in the Giantess shoes.  I was thrilled to find that little green tile.

I'm still dreaming about those shoes!  "Giantess" by S. Brauning
"I FANCY NYC"  Assemblage Room, 10" x 10"
I enjoyed creating this room with mostly objects found while walking the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn….  I bought a small Jewish Prayer book at a used book store and used the cover it came in
as the counter. The book is red, so I painted the floor red.  I collected tons of dandelion seeds from 
Central Park.  I already planted some in my garden.  Yes, I eat Dandelions, I'll take all the Dandies in the world - they are super healthy.  Anyway, true nature could not be hidden under the mass city of 
people, subways and buildings upon buildings.  This room is like one small NYC seed. My seed.

  2. Well. I just don't know what to SAY!
    The things you think up to do. The things you do. How someone could create the tiniest room in all the world! Those champagne cap chairs! I could never ever paint with such a mini brush...and funny that you really DID paint YOU!
    Fascinating stuff. And I think it's so sweet how much you are taken with those shoes. ;)
    No doubt you are planning your next NYC trip.

    1. I've always been drawn to miniatures - it's no wonder my art is tiny. :)
      Thank you.
