Nine Years of Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes


On the Way to a Post

 [Click here to watch a short film about artist Diana Levinson.]

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).

[David Cafiero collaborated on this design.]

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.

Lovely to see Krasner getting some face time.

P.S. Sorry for all the comments at once...I finally have a quiet evening to catch up on blog reading, and there's just some much fabulousness over here. xo

Joni -- Great eye! You are right, I should consider it. Megan suggested that color -- or a similar one -- years ago too. You're both on target.
