Weekend Reflections

Mimi Vang Olsen started out painting people, but
switched to animals when she realized how much
New Yorkers love their pets. I read that a 30" by 40"
oil painting of a dog or cat starts at $2,500. Business
must be good because this storefront studio has been
here for a long time—and she's able to close up the
shop from June to September.

  3. I admire anyone who can paint anything!

    I like the reflections you caught in the window of this delightful studio. It looks like it was a pretty day!

  4. Thanks for the background on the artist and her store. It looks like a great little shop. Love the reflections in the window.

    I'm like you - I hardly ever leave home without my camera!

  5. $2,500? Maybe I'm crazy but I'm happy with just having pictures of my cats. :) Cool reflections!

  6. Thanks, all!
