When I was in New York earlier this month (possibly the happiest days of my life - I was alone, no worries at all and alive and healthy) the Rockefeller Center was one of the places I just had to visit. It helped that it was walking distance from my hotel. There was an Arts festival going on and artists had set up their stalls all around. A lot of it was kitsch and junk, but some work was mind blowing. There was this artist called Shu Leu and I loved her work. Her work was divided into 3 distinct phases. One was with a heavy Japanese influence, the second phase seemed very neo-impressionist to me and a lot of the paintings were very Suzanne Valadon-ish. If I had enough money, I would surely have picked up atleast one of her paintings. I could sadly afford only a print. When I get my digital camera, I shall post the picture. The print was called 'Ten Roses' and it has a woman in a yellow revealing dress in a reclining position. In front of her there are rose bushes with 9 roses on them. I just got the print back from the framers and its come out beautifully.
