Good morning from New York.
For some time now, I've been meaning to share photographs of a certain part of a certain wall in my neighborhood.
This painting by a well know artist was created at least a year ago, and for many months kept its own low profile, attracting attention from folks who could guess its source. No one seemed to bother the lad with the hammer.
Then, a few months ago, a protective plexiglass shield was installed over the painting to protect it from alteration. The expense for this shield was funded by the neighborhood shop Zabar's. Zabar's also accepts contributions from the public.
Since the shield's appearance, graffiti has been scrawled across the shield, and then removed. Currently, some tiny stickers appear on the shield, and perhaps resist removal.
Thank you all for your visiting and commenting on my holiday post. It was a pleasure to share these happy days.
