Lynette Yiadom Boakye

london born and based lynette yiadom boakye

paintings in the tradition of the vibrant mono-color of jacob lawrence, her 21st century translations are grand scaled with frank exuberant brushstrokes.

it’s said she finishes any given work in one day, hence its seeming lifelike impatience to engage and leap off the canvas

Tea Time

upon arriving at home every evening, i generally unwind with a cup of tea.

i found this michael aram tea strainer at a local antique dealer and allow it to hover over  my favorite hermes cup and saucer

hardly an antique…i think it may date ‘way back’ to the 1990s

Bishop Stools – India Mahdavi

every time i happen upon one of india mahdavi’s ‘bishop stools’, my reaction is that, in every ‘en situ’, it feels totally appropriate. no easy task. the bishop is that extra added ‘little layer of something’ every room needs. and we all know it’s the combination of layers + tension that keep a space interesting.

Art

amidst the hideous weather we’re enduring here in the northeast…

it’s also the time of year to visit the various art shows in the area. i’m an art lover and modest collector, but the lovely ms. winfrey really knows how to parlay a purchase.
