Mandala Sienna

Fizz was a dancer. She was tall and buff and had WWII pin-up legs and big brown eyes borrowed from a fawn, and fire-engine red lips that were almost as expressive as her eyes. I saw her only once when I was walking on Park Avenue with my dad’s valet at the corner of 75th…

Look Ma, Two Hands!

When I was a little kid in first grade one of the key activities was the art class. It wasn’t much of a class, really, more like semi-organized chaos.

I was upstairs in my attic atelier, painting, when the front doorbell sounded.  I went downstairs dreading having to deal with a door-to-door salesperson, charity solicitor, or missionary. But, no, it was two women from the Stamford Advocate, who asked me if I was interesting. My daughter was nearby in the family room, and she…
