These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep



Last night must have been extremely frustrating, but at least you are making progress on the walls (and ceiling beams) again today.

Yeah, the guy was nice about it. He even offered(asked?) if I wanted to do a faux finish demonstration there in the spring. Though I know he meant it as a compliment, I did that job for nine years. I went to design school because I didn't want to do it anymore. It made me feel like after five years and 3 degrees, I'm still where I was five years ago.

Not good.

About to put the second coat of plaster on the second (of four) ceiling beam sections now.

The camphone really picks up none of the paint effect on the walls, but I haven't pulled out my nikon since I started this.

It's coming along. It will be a long time before the room is "finished" but the painting part should be done in about a week, if not a little less.

I'm about to head up on the ladder to polish up one of the ceiling beam sections before moving a whole bunch of stuff around so I can get to the last two ceiling beam parts.

Yes. Like everything else, I will be glad when it's over and I can go back to my portfolio, really. Provided I can get the help I need with that, which isn't dependent on my schedule, obviously.
