Mirror ...Mirror ...

On the Table
On the wall

Thursday, March 29, 2012


A white kitchen with shelves holding white dishes,
Light filled rooms with white furniture and touches of warm color,
or all white with a touch of black here and there for drama,
the romance of a white bedroom with a  grand bed piled high with soft pillows.

We will move to another country, on another continent and we will live in the country instead of the city.
We will be Country Mice this time.
I want to drive long roads , shaded by huge trees.
I want a house with room for many books.
I want places to read those books, inside the house and out.
And Someday there will be a pup who will come live with us.

A Touch of Red

Sometimes, just a touch is all that is needed.

Well, well, Wellington !

With the times changing, locations being sought and dreams of new places, homes and lifestyles being the stuff of daydreams, I always tend to feel the need to Dress the Part.
If I were to live in an old house in the woods , I think a pair of Wellingtons would be necessary.
De rigueur !
Where I live now, they wear Wellies out in the Pampas, on a cattle ranch or some such.
Some girls wear them in the city, when we have serious rains and no one can cross the street for the rivers of rushing water in the gutters ... well, only those girls in Wellingtons. 
They stride across the flooded streets with nary a care.
I see myself more like Stella McCartney or Stella Tenant .. not that I have a fixation with the name Stella but they both wear a pair of Wellingtons well.
Style and a pair of Wellies is my goal.
Just because I will be living out in the woods somewhere does not mean that I must be sloppy or un-stylish.
Heaven forbid !!

My new goal.
Everyone should have a goal .

There is a house I dream of ...

There is a house I dream of .. with grand old trees, many windows looking out over gardens or fields or mountains.

Where the kitchen is a place where we will gather with friends and family and laugh and enjoy the wonderful dishes that we serve, in a room that holds only warmth and love.
Where nights are spent in a cozy spot, under the eaves perhaps, with windows to look out on to gardens or trees and where the only sounds are those that the birds or wind make .
Where family and friends will gather often , to share the pleasure of the place and our company and each other.

And now for something Completely Different

Excerpts from an Interview with
Charles Saatchi 
Art Collector
Husband of Nigela Lawson
( I really admire both of them)

* People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it’s safer to harass rich women than a motorcycle gang.

* As the old saying goes, all anybody needs to know about prizes is that Mozart never won one.

* Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.

* Trying to make the world a better place is usually the province of those who want to feel good about themselves. 
So I may be a disappointing person in many ways, but at least I have never fostered grand designs for social engineering.....

*Meaning well is not the same as doing good. 

When asked about why he rarely attended his own Art show openings, he was quoted as saying :  "I don't go to other people's openings, so I extend the same courtesy to my own."

Q- You seem dismissive of art experts, curators and critics, is this based on arrogance or experience?

A- For 47 days in 1961, Matisse's Le Bateau was hanging upside down in theMuseum of Modern Art in New York City. 
None of the  34 curatorial staff or 280 art critics noticed.
The mistake was discovered by Genevieve Hubert, a stockbroker.

My window helps me look, at the future and past.
Constantly remind me, that nothing shall last.

It's All White

The Time has come to think of New Rooms  .. White rooms 

Friday, March 9, 2012

A Nook , A Book

Someday I plan to have a space where books are just lined up, waiting for me to read them.
Eagerly awaiting their turn .. maybe we will sit in the room on a window seat
maybe  by the fire in a cozy chair or maybe out in the garden in a hammock.
But they will have their own room, or nook, those books.

A good painting to me has always been like a friend. 
It keeps me company, comforts and inspires.
