Radio City Music Hall

"Radio City Music Hall"
Day 9
6"x8" oil on canvas panel

We were fortunate enough to be able to attend the annual Radio City Rockettes Christmas Spectacular.  We attended an early morning performance which gave us several hours later in the day to continue our trek through the city.

This show features not only the very talented and precision-dancing Rockettes but live animals like camels and donkeys when the Nativity scene takes over the stage.  It is quite moving and reinforces the real reason for our celebration of Christmas.

We used the subway system to get to far off places and my daughter Kim and daughter-in-law Leah were very knowledgeable when it came to figuring out where to get on and get off once we decided where we needed to go.  It is nice when roles can be reversed so my granddaughter and I could just be tourists and let them make all the decisions and calculations.  Age has its benefits!


  1. I love hearing about your trip and seeing your paintings. Makes me so excited to think I'll be taking Emma in 2 years. She will be 14 tomorrow. You are doing excellent paintings!

  2. Connie, I have always said you are one of my cheerleaders. Thank you so much. I am glad you are enjoying the paintings and the blog. You will love exploring NYC with your granddaughter. She can figure out the subway system for you!
