My New Camera is Here!

I also picked up the drawings Craig McPherson did of me (many years ago), all gorgeously framed. I agonized about where to put them, I mean, I am naked after all. But me aside, they are beautiful drawings—the frames alone are works of art. I was so astounded at how exquisitely the frames came out the guy took me down to where the frames were made to show me how they hand applied and burnished the gold leaf. This is the same outfit that does the framing for the Metropolitan Museum of Art to give you an idea of who we’re talking about here. They are Gerlach Frames, Inc., 309 Nassau Avenue, 718-486-8836, in case you want to get the absolute best frames out there.

I decided these drawings must be hung where they will be seen, so in the living room they went. My first picture with my new camera shows the spot I chose. (It’s also one of Buddy’s favorite places to hang out.) This picture, obviously, doesn’t do justice to Craig’s drawings. I posted a better shot of one of them here. And for more about Craig McPherson, you can go to his website here.

It also doesn’t do justice to what the camera can do, but I’ve just begun exploring.
