I’ve seen plenty of rainy days in New York City, but this morning I saw something I have never seen before. New Yorkers were moving in slow motion. The city known for people who hurry up and wait was going slower than ever. When I stumbled upon artist Helen Dardik, I felt as if she was reaching out to New Yorkers with a solution! All of her pieces are like a cup of joe, uplifting and full of flavor. She mixes bold colors that fill the eye and combines interesting subjects. Take a look at more of her work on her website, blog, or in her Etsy shop, Helen Dardik. Especially you, New York. You look like you need a boost.
