More NYC an enviable view of the Fireworks and a quilt idea

It will probably be the first and last time I get a view like this but it was spectacular.  The reflection of the Empire State building and the Chrysler building can be seen in some of the photos.

And these photos reminded me of a quilt I had seen at my first quilt show.

A little vacation from the work..... a trip to NYC .... a park installation

Madison Square Park installation Cuban Artist.
Teresita Fern├índez (b. 1968, Miami, Florida) is an artist best known for her prominent public sculptures and unconventional use of materials. Fern├índez’s work is characterized by an interest in perception and the psychology of looking. Her experiential, large-scale works are often inspired by landscape and natural phenomena as well as diverse historical and cultural references. The artist has lived and worked in Brooklyn, New York since 1997. She is represented by Lehmann Maupin in New York City.
The artist’s work has explored issues in contemporary art related to perception and the fabrication of the natural world. Often her sculptures present spectacular optical illusions and evoke natural phenomena, land formations, and water in its infinite forms.
