What a fabulous time in NYC! The First Street reception had great energy and really great work.

While in Manhattan I went to visit the studio of Ann and Bruno Lucchesi. It was awe-inspiring to see their work as well as the piece Bruno is currently working on. I especially liked seeing the small models of some of his larger commissioned work. What truly inspired me about Bruno is that now that he has master the art of sculpture he is starting to study painting.
