It took me about five seconds to say yes.
Elizabeth and I met in Hong Kong when I had an art show at the Hong Kong Visual Art Centre in 1995. The exhibit and art show was part of a group I belonged to called Artists Abroad. We soon became great friends, and she welcomed me into an amazing group of female artists.

You might be familiar with my teapot that I put into so many of my designs. This was a going away gift from Elizabeth and my most cherished possession.
We stayed in the loveliest hotels on Central Park West and had a wonderful time. I was their guest at the Trump International Hotel.
We visited galleries all over town. This one was in Chelsea. Wolf Kahn Oil paintings were on exhibit at the Thomas Segal Gallery.
the Guggenheim and then onto the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We loved seeing our favorite artists there, and the current Punk Rock Fashion exhibit was really fun.
We found the most amazing restaurants and caught up on news of our families and what is going on in Hong Kong today.
On Saturday, after lunch, I just had to take Elizabeth to my favorite shop, The Tinsel Trading Company.
We had an amazing time together, and as I waved goodbye and they continued on to their jouney back to Washington D.C. I missed them already.
Thank you Elizabeth and Howard for such a beautiful weekend. Until next time.
