Dean and I live in a modest home by a large urban park. Most of our furniture we have had to alter to fit the small rooms. In these photos, you can see our silver leafed cabinet where we store our computer supplies and printers. We also silver leafed our dinning room table! This finish is luxurious and helps the rooms seem bigger.
Well, why am I doing a blog? I think I have become painfully aware of the fleeting quality of life's minutes. I know circumstances change and will change in ways I can not image today, so capturing today with a sense of beauty and tenderness is my goal.
This Missoni dress was purchased on clearance many years ago before Target made Missoni a household name. I love it because it reminds me of a spring forest. I included the painting because it matches the feel of this dress and our home. It's a portrait of us in a mysterious landscape trying to identify an unusual plant. As artists we are always in search of the next inspiration to follow.
