Spotted @10corsocomo.newyork things we have in the shop! Also the artist dolls by @todayisartday #arthero collection (we have Frida, Vincent, Rene, and more). Not in the shop, the Danish gentleman hand hammering a @georgjensen pitcher. #onlyinNYC#holidaygifts
I got my package of cards from @elenaskoreyko today and I know I’m going to struggle with giving any away! They’re so vibrant and real and they capture the winter/Christmas cozy feelings so perfectly!!
Holy wow!!! @feliciaolin thank you so much for the kind word and being the best cheerleader for us “lesser known” artists! You really have been so supportive and I appreciate you greatly for the art! You amazing me! Something special is coming your way soon! Thank you so much!!! #artistssupportingartists#artsitinspiration#arthero
Saying goodbye to Madrid comes with some surprising and not so surprising twists and turns. I've fallen deeply in love with a language and culture that is warm, sweet, caring, and considerate. I've made beautiful connections with people who feel as though they come from my very own soul. I've developed and strengthened my dance and pole skills and learned ways to defend myself with confidence. I've enjoyed amazing home cooked meals, wonderful snuggles, and hilariously getting made fun of until I cry.
I'm truly in love with life and so grateful to be graced with the company of weird, beautiful humans and experiences that will forever add goofiness and color to my world. I am full. I am warm. I am glad to soon return to my very own tub, my very own bed, and my very own family and friends, but I am also recognizing that I have made a wonderful home here in Spain that I'm already looking forward to returning to. Until next time xo

Words can not express how grateful I am to have received this surprise treasure in the post today!!! I stood in front of this glorious masterpiece a few weeks ago at IlluxCon and fell in deep smit. I kept leaving and returning to it. I am going through a few life changes right now so I could not afford to take it home with me and was a bit heartbroken there were no prints available. I am forever flabbergasted by Jeff's mastery of charcoal and have informed him that he is my mentor now whether he likes it or not. So my excitement at unveiling this and seeing the small accents customized IN MY FAVORITE COLOR was uncontrollable. My cup runneth over!!!! Thank you Master Echevarria💗💗💗💗💗 @jeff_ech
Finally got to buy one of the books by @travisjhanson, and he did up some sketches for the kiddos as well. Mr. Hanson is one of the artists I most look up to. He's given @qui.gon.john and I so much good advice and real down-to-earth encouragement; he's just a genuinely nice person. He creates comics, books, and has absolutely gorgeous artwork and prints. If you haven't seen his work yet, I highly recommend checking out what he does. And if you get the chance to meet him at a show, even better! (Our daughter took a particular shine to him, and has been talking all about her "new friend" ☺)
I got to meet one of my art heroes today, @tommykane who’ve I’ve only communicated with via social media. We enjoyed lunch at Tommy’s place and got a tour of his amazing art collection and his exquisite sketchbooks. So great!! Thanks pal!! #art#arthero#drawing#brooklynartist#artpal
I'm finally feeling like getting things done. Running. Doing more yoga. Cooking for myself. Editing photos. Responding. .
Travel has uncovered a depth of self reliance and badassery that has been itching to come out. It's also revealed soft, tenderness that yearns for others and knows when to ask for help. In saying, "I'll see you later," to everyone and everything I have known for my entire life to allow for these new experiences, I am learning so much about myself and the world. .
I get closer and closer to my loves and passions. I recognize what's important. I better understand my worth.
Life is what I make it and how I shape this narrative. And you, dear reader, get an intimate, front-row seat. I hope you're getting something good from it. At the very least, may you be tittilated and entertained. .
ARELLANO, JUAN DE -
Basket of flowers
1668 - 1670. Oil on canvas
Resting on a stone base, an openwork wicker basket full of flowers is the subject of this painting. The flowers represent an enormous variety of species, enabling a notably rich range of colours and forms, even when the entire arrangement is structured symmetrically. Among the manifold varieties are lilies, #tulips , hydrangeas, roses, anemones and carnations, some of which -like the tulips- would have been costly specimens associated with a world of luxury and sophistication. Some of the flowers that have not been incorporated in the arrangement lie on the stone surface, as if the basket had just been prepared and the flowers only recently cut. This sensation of freshness and #vitality is emphasised by the presence of numerous animals -primarily insects, such as the bees and butterflies that flit about the flowers.
