Many years ago, I had the chance to live on the east coast for a few years. New York City is everything a young career woman would want to experience. The 'bling", the buzz, the best of everything.
The Upper West Side is a neighborhood in Manhattan, that lies between the Hudson River and Central Park. Like the Upper East Side, the West Side is an upscale, primarily residential area. Truth be told, many creative types live there, although I have to admit, all of NYC is full of energy and culture and activity.
The Upper West Side has the reputation of being home to the City's cultural, intellectual and artistic types, while the Upper East Side is traditionally perceived to be home to the more commercial and business types.
This piece is inspired by the "Upper West Side" of New York City. A memory piece that reflects the 'bling', the buzz, the action and the experience that is NYC.
This mirror, was formally an oak bathroom cabinet door found at my local flea market. The background is black tissue, overlaid with white Unryu tissue papers. The frame is embellished with bits and bling, from here and there, you will need to look close to see it all.
The back is finished with the same papers, and embellished with some favorite quotes . . . (click the images to enlarge)
