Cozy, seamless integration.

Rembrandt's wife has always made a good, docile piece - it fit really easily with many things, but this one is probably by far the best.
Warm & cozy feeling on a cold winter day.
Long live art!!!!

Do not take as directed: the worst we are with rules, the better we are with art?

Geez, it's been a month since I've written anything here! Well, between work, trips to ER & to NYC, my usual movies & library on Saturday afternoons, le temps s'ecoule' tres vite!
eh bien!
The very visual explanation of how to take the pills made me think of a friend of mine, a very, very talented artist from Buenos Aires, Hernan (whom i've invited to come to my place & consider it his artistic residence for some time...) - his work is below.
Rules, art, smart people having their galleries shut down (precisely because they're smart????)
Biutiful it is not!

Moveable feast

Have been playing with this idea for a while & finally did it: chunky, moving necklace. Same painting cut in 3 parts.
Yes, you really can't go against your nature: while big things might scare some other people (how about T shirts, huh? that beats me!), they look right on me, so we'll keep doing this!

Other coincidential women pairing

Bingo!!! Edward Hopper meets an old lady (from a photograph bought from my own suppliers in Rio de Janeiro).
Love it when things fit into place like this, seamlessly...

Animating the everyday

Of course one of my real, seriously-unserious New Year Resolutions, is to keep 'animating the everyday'. And here's one of my most recent pieces, a naughty little thing, just the way we like them... Title? "Vertical & horizontal" (reference to the fact that 'horizontale' is a slang term for a prostitute in French). Women by Rembrandt & Kees Van Dongen.

New Year Resolution (not mine)

I'm not sure that i believe "Being green" tops the list of New Year's Resolutions this year (although i've seen this info more than once).
What is not going away is the tired & true (?) relationship/love, always high on the list.
I meant to post my lamp couple long time ago, but now the timing was just right.
So, the Carabiniere/Liquore Galliano lamp has been with me for years (bought in 2004 in Washington D.C. before moving to Chicago), but i found the lady by chance recently.
And look what a beautiful couple!!!!
Women rule, as usual: the lady lamp is much brighter than the guy!
My New Year Resolution? No to matchmaking & coupling, but yes to matching objects for my house!
