Working on a blog post for next week, I started searching to see if video coverage of Michelle Levinson's 2002 wedding is available over at Martha's site. Along the way, I remembered that Michelle's mom, Diana Levinson, is a talented artist. In fact she's an abstract expressionist and a really wonderful colorist. There's also calligraphic imagery in a lot of her work that I love. You can take a peek here and here.

Speaking of American abstraction, I have to pause and appreciate the Lee Krasner hanging in Tom and Drew's place (Lonny, June 2010, photo by Patrick Cline).

There's so much Lonny goodness to explore next week (congrats Atlanta Lee!) but hastily now I'm highlighting the David Cafiero project. I've never seen a Cafiero room that didn't have interesting art (even Chloe's oft-blogged patterned entry hall, published January 2007, has a sculptural bust on the console). And of course I'm partial to the fabric on the wing chairs.

If you haven't devoured it yet, this is an issue to savor during a leisurely weekend morning.
Above, a little more refreshing summer imagery from contemporary painter Amanda Talley. Shown here is her latest, Push-Pop, an acrylic and pastel on archival paper, 20 by 26 inches, $450 unframed.
