The recreated studio of Brancusi at Centre Pompidou, Paris.  It can really transport you. The brilliance of it all...

Endearing “sculpture” created by painting the underside of a child’s little shoebox and cutting the sides to make the hair. Clever. French artist. Found in Paris.

My kitchen table at the cabin is an old fluted column fragment with a thick round glass top. There’s another fluted column in the corner, and a lamp made from a column. Can there be too many columns? No. Decidedly no.

No, this is not a painting. This was just a moment in time before dusk last night after a very grey day. No filter, just awe. See ya next year, February.

From our house, you can see the house down on the point, and I especially love it when the afternoon light seems to choose it.

Spending Sunday morning with Cy Twombly. (From the book on his homes and studios.) I love artists—past and living.  You know who you are.

Have a most fabulous Sunday everyone.

Lovely scalloped platter by Astier de Villatte. These are gorgeous on the table, but when a grouping of them  is mounted on the wall, it is something else altogether. Think about it...
(This one is 16x12 inches.)
