If you ever happen to be sailing around New York Harbor and see an attractive Asian woman climbing over slippery seaweed covered rocks along the shore with a sketch book in her hand chances are it is Christina Sun aka Bowsprite.  She is an artist who covers the waterfront with pen, pencils, water colors and sometimes a camera. She has also been known  swim in places like Gloucester harbor in Massachusetts in November. If you happen to be in New York this week Sun and another waterfront artist named Frank Hanavan are exhibiting their works where else but, on the waterfront. Specifically in an old Lighthouse tender named LILAC  docked at Pier 25 on the Hudson River. Here are the particulars:
