Travel Diary: NYC!

What can I say? I love NYC! This was my second time to visit, and I still feel like there are never enough minutes in the day to see everything. I guess I'll just have to come back! I saw art, ate delicious food, attended the NYC Craft Beer Festival, spent quality time with friends, caught a show at the Bowery Ballroom, and even got to see Chris Rock, Dave Attell, and Jeff Ross at the famous Comedy Cellar. I can't wait to go back!

I was so excited that my visit happened to coincide with the 13th Hour Exhibition at Last Rites Gallery!

'Sarracenia Heart' by Fay Helfer. I love that this one was created using pyrography and natural pigments, including indigo, turmeric, bone char, and cochineal.
