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
…i would own one of these (if they weren’t in museums)…

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

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.
enameled ceramic. marble. mettalic. take your pick.

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.
oprah’s klimt flip
i intend to visit the elegant lady below at nyc’s neue gallery before she disappears somewhere off in the far east
visit a gallery. see art. it’s good for you.
…here’s a little something for the person that has everything…
the bubble ball + wand. now crafted in porcelain and 14k gold plated steel. beats the plastic version every time.
ahhhh….memories of a carefree childhood.
spring can’t get here quickly enough.
