Last weekend, Tito and I took a quick (and desperately needed) getaway trip to visit my cousins in New York City. We needed a break, for the end of the summer, and also I really needed to step away from the book. My editor had it for the weekend, so that seemed like the right time! I took only my little Fuji x100s camera, set mostly to archival Fuji BW film.
Here are some highlights from our trip to the Met. What an incredible place to get inspired, so many textures! As a knitter/potter/polymer clay/resin junkie I was in heaven.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC
One of my favourites, this is Katherine Linn Sage (Kay Sage) and it’s called ‘Tomorrow is Never’.
The colours! I must dye a skein of yarn to match this.
My other favourite. This is by a Norwegian painter called Pedar Balke. He painted this particular scene a few times, I love how real and silvery the water looks.
We saw less than a 20th of the collection I’m sure, but I’m so glad it was part of the 48 hours we had in NYC!
