Works on Silk
for body & home
Sometimes a pillow, a throw or a wall hanging (the method kings kept the heat in their castles) is more in keeping with ones' aesthetic when treated as art.
Growing up in England, we were always surrounded by colorful art--from Caribbean-style crocheted doilies to fridge art.
then there were the flowers. I grew up in England where
neighbors would rage a battle that was fiercer than the Blitz: the bragging
rights for the best-looking garden--the bigger and most bodacious the
blooms, the better. It wasn't unusual for all hell to break loose when
one neighbor was caught nicking (transl. borrowing with neither prior
approval nor intension of remuneration )
This collection of art from my repertoire was once coined in House &
Garden as "Comfortable Paintings"--art that you truly live
with--and featured in the Times.
