Shared Memories: For the love New York Lunch

Gloversville Arts

Written by guest blogger Jessica Henry McClements

Close your eyes. Take a moment to relax and breathe in and out a few times.
Now, imagine.

You hear the clinking of glass. The smell of onions sizzling on a grill starts to fill your nose. You can hear someone saying “two dogs with the works please.” Next to you, someone is pouring coffee.

Can you smell French fries fresh up from a fryer?
Can you hear the soft humming sounds of a refrigerator?

There is steam wafting through the air. The soft tinkling of forks and knives can be heard throughout.

Open your eyes.

What did you see? Where were you in that moment?
If you were thinking of your favorite diner then you’re in the right place.

For me, that would be New York Lunch on Bleecker Street in Gloversville.

I have been eating at New York Lunch since…

It’s In The Blood Lines

Hidden Talent

With moving out of the shop 10 months ago and cleaning up mom’s studio at home, I discovered a talent that I have and completely shut out since I 12-13 years old.  Mom found this huge brief case filled with drawings that I did in high school.  It took me a while to realize that I created these drawings and paintings, then it hit me like a ton of bricks that I actually did create these paintings and drawings.  I never really realized how good I was until I found some scrap paper and started to draw some things.  Realizing that I have a part of my mother’s drawing talent, I can create some great things on my own.  For example, I created this new logo above with a sketch app on my Amazon tablet.  It’s called a bohemian flower at midnight.  Being able to spread my wings and not only doing crochet, this is great.  Below this paragraph, is more drawings that I’ve created in the last couple of weeks, along with the drawings that I discovered in high school.

New Drawings

After discovering this hidden talent, I immediately went on Pinterest to get some ideas for drawing and went to Michael’s Arts And Crafts for my birthday gift and bought sketchbooks, pencils, markers and a book with sketch ideas.  I can do faces and other items, but I also wanted to see some symbols and try some symbols that I find inspiring.  Below is a Celtic symbol for love and a mountain drawing on the inside and a peace symbol on the outside.

The High School Years

One of the drawings found in a portfolio brief case found in the back of mom’s studio.  This simple geometric drawing filled with crayons is simple, unique and filled with color.  For the geometric person, this is for you!

More To Come
