Gallery Mondays: Goddess in a Sidewalk Vineyard

Back in September 2015, I was walking along 9th Ave in Midtown when I saw this gorgeous goddess outside of Casa di Isacco.

I’d passed by the restaurant a couple of times, but I never realized there was a sculpture sitting in that sidewalk vineyard. The sculpture looks like a depiction of Greek/Roman goddess Hebe/Juventus, but I’m not entirely sure.

Doesn’t this photo make you wish it was still autumn in NYC? Gosh, this snow needs to melt. STAT.

Gallery Mondays: Winter Wooden Deer

If you passed by or entered a TD Bank during December 2015, you might have seen these adorable wooden crafted animals sporting the bank’s green accessories.

This little deer was sitting on a ledge at the TD Bank near 9th Ave in Midtown, NYC. He’s got a green striped scarf on with a little TD Bank pin and a snowy pine tree behind him.

The little tiny pieces of wood that were used to make this deer couldn’t have been an easy task to complete. But the finished product is one to gush over.

I just wish they would have kept these little guys around all winter!

 

Gallery Mondays: ‘Rise’ by Stoupakis @ Last Rites Gallery

Oh, what some of us would do to be submerged in a body of water like this woman right now.

While I was checking out the latest exhibit at Last Rites Gallery called “The Kindly Ones,” I stumbled upon this beautiful painting by Davis Stoupakis.

The painting is called Rise, and the red color he uses for the flowers in the water give the scene a sort of passionate nature. From the woman’s pose to the way her hair blends into the water, this painting is just simply gorgeous.
