ART




Well.....we made it to Friday and pretty quickly I might add.  Of course I am not the authority on all things "old related"....but let me just put this out there:

Time goes WAY faster when you are old

Yeah...I know pretty newsworthy right?  Call the press.

Just saying.

Alrighty then....let's get down to "bidness...."

A few of you asked about the art in my recent Before and After:


The artist name is Nancy B Westfall.  Even though the client is fairly traditional....we decided to add a piece of contemporary art [with color I might add] to liven up the space and keep it from being too predictable.   I can be clever like that :)


It had many of the colors that we are using in other rooms of the house.

She is represented by Gregg Irby Fine Art here in Atlanta

Here are a few more images of her work.

I  like this one.



Gregg represents some wonderful artist.
Christina Baker

Kate Merritt Davis

If your local please visit her gallery.

I had an artist reach out to me the other day in an email.... so I went to her website and liked what I saw!


Her name is Amy Duke...go here to see more.

Yesterday I was at Stacey Steward's blog Steward of Design
spilling the beans about my life and how I got into design.  Stacey is a NEW blogger so be polite and go over to say hi!  Remember when you first started out....how excited it was to get comments....please show her some love.

Annnnnndddd the last thing today is that my friend Angela from The Painted House is curating a collection for Joss and Main Tuesday, February 5.  Plus...her loft was just featured in Atlanta magazine.  Go check it out on her blog!

Did I give you enough to do today.....I can be somewhat bossy at times.

Enjoy the Superbowl....go _______________
You can fill in the blank :)

Shapam baby!

You are a nut!

I think the painting you picked for the space couldn't be more perfect. Original art is the best--BUY REAL ART, folks. Now who's bossy?

Thank you for spreading the word about Joss & Main--I'm excited about it!

Hope to see you hanging out in that super luxe room of yours and Lori's this weekend...

I love that piece of art you chose for your client. It is so fresh in that space. I wish I could fill up my house with original works of art!!! Or paint something other than a wall :)
Happy weekend Sherry!

Gregg Irby said...

Thanks so much for including our artists and the gallery in your blog. As always, I love reading your blog. I was blown over by your room at the Inspiration House. You turned a space with almost zero potential into a super cool, livable room!!

Beautiful!

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

Love the pick up truck. Thanks for the art intro!

My Crafty Home Life said...

I love this art. Yes "time is flying by"....hey that phrase might catch on. I like Stacey, and already follow her. Sometimes this blogging world is huge, and sometimes it small. I don't do football, so I will be DIY-ing some stuff.

StagerLinda said...

Love, love, love the art. The old Ford made me have a Bridges of Madison County moment....

Flying Designer said...

Love the turquoise truck! Hope you are enjoying Super Bowl Sunday!
