Visit to Chapel of Sacred Mirrors

Yesterday I went to Wappingers Falls, NY to Alex & Allyson Grey’s museum to attend a tattoo event that was going on there.

Visionary Tattoo EventI had been to see the Sacred Mirrors when they were on display in New York City. If you aren’t familiar with any of this you can check it out here: Chapel of Sacred Mirrors  This event was being put on by Guy Aitchison and Michelle Wortman (with the assistance of a whole bunch of other folks). If you are not familiar with their work you can check that out here: Hyperspace Studios

It was a wonderful day and the grounds there are truly inspiring. If you want more details you are going to have to ask. For now, here are some photos for you to check out.

Starting of course with getting there. There was a car show going on in Syracuse and there were beautiful classic cars all over the place. I even spotted some of the Beatniks on the road.

Caryl and I did not stay for the late night paint session. Caryl had to leave early in the morning and I wasn’t looking forward to standing around watching people paint in a loud room… even folks who are as talented as these folks are. So back to the hotel room for a “light” snack before bed.

Ben & Jerry's for dinner   The pool in the hotel was pretty small and I was kind of sad that I couldn’t do laps, but once I got in I wound up just playing for a good while.   hotel pool and then back on the road for the trip home…                     

and finally back to my “loving” cat who was only slightly annoyed with me for having abandoned him again.

Toby catI have another adventure planned for this week, so hopefully I will have photos of projects and of that for you very soon.
