Back to School!

It's Back to School time!

I just painted If I Were A Toy store's door in the nick of time. 
These animals are en route to PS58 here in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.

Bear and bird chat about summer adventures

Slightly confused mouse goes through the motions

little bunny sports over-sized backpack

Teacher lugs books to class, while a 
couple of critters hitch a ride

Shy, but curious raccoon skips the 1st day

Excited skunk can't wait to begin, hopes to make
teacher's "pet" this year

I love painting this door over & over. I've learned a lot
painting on glass, such a fun smooth surface, the paint simply glides!


My friend, Robin, took the top photo of me with the door
before walking down to Red Hook this weekend to shop some of 
the charming shops like Brooklyn General, Bopkat Vintage, Union Max
and Brooklyn Collective which I love! It's expanded a great deal since I was last there. 
I'll post more about these spots next time.

For now, here are a few shots of Brooklyn Bridge Park at the end of the day.
This is my first visit back (besides riding by it) since they began construction.
It's fantastic!

Volley Ball

I actually included information about the development on 
one of my early posts about Brooklyn Heights Promenade
and it's a little embarrassing to admit that I have not gone 
down until now to take advantage and appreciate all they've done!

Above, Robin tastes wine at Waterfront Wines.
A nice way to close the day.
I'll post more about the mini shopping spree next time.
Enjoy the rest of Labor Day!

Thanks for taking a look :)
xo, A
